If you are interested in volunteering, or helping in any other way, please contact Hazel Bateman
We need two types of volunteers at the basics bank.
Our servers sort, pack and hand out the food to those we serve.
This involves lifting boxes and bags of tinned food so requires a degree of physical ability together with a friendly nature happy to make tea and coffee while chatting to guests.
Requires availability during the day on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays.
Our promoters help us at supermarkets and other events raise awareness of the work we do and encourage shoppers to buy us some food during their shopping trip.
This is a really important area to support us in as without food on the shelves we can't do what we do.
Promoters usually help us at weekends as much as they can, when they can and is not a regular commitment.
Ideal for those unavailable in the week or unable to do physical lifting.
