  • Can you fix things or complete minor repairs? 
  • Are you a confident handy person with basic joinery or decorating skills?
  • Are you great with people and keen to make a difference?

How much time can you donate?

What will you do?

  • Confidently and accurately promote the aims and objectives of the charity at all times.
  • Be confident speaking with general public and answering any questions about our work.


  • Your confidence and sense of purpose will likely increase.
  • You will meet new people and build new relationships. 
  • You will be giving something back within your local community.
  • Unlimited tea and coffee while you work! 

It’s a win/win!
