Volunteer opportunities

Packing parties and other volunteer opportunities in 2020.

What are these? 
Packing parties (a.k.a. channel your inner Christmas elf) are where we get together to sort the donations, wrap boxes, and fill them.  It is great fun putting gift boxes together with a group of like-minded people, a bit like being a 'Christmas elf'.  So whether you can stay for an hour or longer we would love to see you.

Due to the Covid19 pandemic we have to limit the number of people in the hall at any one time.  So registration is very helpful!, if you just turn up and there are five people there already then you will not be able to help out. Sorry about this but we are following the best guidelines on how to run a safe event. Please register using the link to the right of each date.
If you would like to help but are unable to attend an event, email us to see if we can give you a task to complete at home.  

Box deliveries (your chance to be a Christmas reindeer!) are where we pack up cars & vans with the donations and deliver the gift boxes and other goodies to places like ODAS, Maltilda House, O'Hanlon House, Asylum Welcome, Refugee Resource etc.  Further details will be posted when available.   

Please note: If any event has to be re-organised at short notice, we will do our best to inform the people who have told us they will be coming along.
