Volunteer opportunities

Packing parties, coffee mornings, and other volunteer opportunities.

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. Just so we know how many people will be turning up, please register your interest using the link to the right of each date.  

Coffee mornings -- we use these to promote the work that we do in a relaxed, informal manner. It is also an opportunity to meet the people who support us and chat over coffee and cake. 

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, Simon House, O'Hanlon House, Asylum Welcome, Refugee Resource etc. If you are able to provide your own sleigh, sorry car or van, that is very helpful.  

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