Ways you can help.
Helping out at the hub - From staffing the free shop, being on hand to answer enquiries, or doing odd jobs to keep the place ship shape, the needs and opportunities at our Redland base are constantly evolving.
Delivery's - due to poverty and ill health many of our service users are unable to travel to the hub or to get items they have chosen to their homes. Can you help us deliver items to them? You must hold a full driving licence!
Sorting aid - the hub is now set up to collect and sort aid for us to distribute to camps in Europe. Come and help us sort the aid into manageable loads to distribute on the ground.
Joining our events team - come out and about and spread the word about the work we do, raise some funds and have some fun!
Hold a fundraiser - Any activity can be turned into a fundraiser.
If you‘ve got an idea or want inspiration, let us know and we can help you with organising and fundraising packs. Here are a few ideas….
