Volunteering Opportunities – February 2020

Do you have some spare time which you’d like to put to good use?

At the moment we’ve got some interesting opportunities for people with a variety of skills and experience to become VIP Volunteers.

Some of our current regular VIP volunteering opportunities:

  • Handy Person – 2 weekdays a week to help our Maintenance and Housekeeping Team with general painting, tidying up, gardening, cleaning
  • Activity assistant to support with running activities for the families on alternate Saturdays for 2/3 hours between 11am and 3pm

Fundraising volunteers

We also need volunteers to help us run our fundraising events – such as marshalling a sponsored walk and other outside events, bag packing etc – so if it’s ‘as and when’ volunteering rather than regular volunteering that you’re interested in, have a look just complete the AAWsome Volunteering Form and email it back to us. We’ll then keep your contact details on file and let you know when we’ve got opportunities coming up.

Deb Withington, our Volunteer Coordinator is in the office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and she would love to hear from you. Call her on 01782 973491 or email deborah.withington@gingerbreadcentre.co.uk
