Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
MoVolunteers are the driving force behind foodbanks. There are thousands of volunteers across the UK, helping The Trussell Trust Foodbank Network get emergency food to people in crisis. We want you to enjoy volunteering and there are lots of ways to get involved. Whatever role you choose, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis.
At present we are looking for Warehouse volunteers, a Communications Volunteer and Cafe Help in Harleston
We really need warehouse team volunteers at Brome NR Eye, please contact us for an informal chat and we will invite you to visit us and see what we do.
Call Matt or Jemma in 01379 870506 Mon Wed Fri 8-12
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you
This would include:
Preparing a regular email newsletter
Preparing a short version of our strategic plan and helping send this to
stakeholders and other interested parties such as local MPs, councils, etc.
Reviewing the Foodbank’s current social media presence and advising on what
we might be able to do to expand and/or improve this.
This volunteer position is likely to suit someone who has some experience of working
in a communications team, writing clearly and concisely, and with a good knowledge
of social media and the internet.
The Comms volunteer will need to visit the main warehouse and office at Brome
regularly, liaising closely with the Project Manager, but a lot of the actual drafting can
be done from home.
If you think you might fit the bill, please email a short CV to the chair of Trustees at
[email protected], and head your email “Communications Volunteer”.
