Consider volunteering with the organisations we work with, listed below.

Ace of Clubs

Our partner Ace of Clubs is looking for volunteers! They are providing a takeaway food service that caters for between 120-180 people daily, as well as laundry services for guests. 

Volunteers prepare food and takeaway bags, serve food to guests, help manage the flow of guests, respond to queries, and help tidy up. Volunteers may also be able to assist in the garden, the food storeroom or the laundry. They're also keen to hear from volunteers with experience of graphic design.

They need volunteers available at least one day per week (Monday to Friday) from 9.30am to 3pm, for a minimum of four months. This could be a different day each week. 

If you are interested please email Martin at Ace of Clubs with your availability [email protected].
