Community shop volunteer

Opportunity

Our annual Winter Warmth project will be based in a shop unit in Culver Street East, Colchester from January to March 2018 inclusive. The Winter Warmth project aims to help elderly and vulnerable local residents stay warm and well throughout the winter period. Our shop unit will be distributing winter warmth packs, containing products such as hot water bottles and slippers.

We are looking for volunteers who can spend time in the shop, greeting members of the public and giving out the Winter Warmth packs. There will also be opportunity to signpost members of the public to other services which support wellbeing and independence.

We will also have a range of community and social activities based at the venue and this role would suit someone who enjoys taking time to chat with members of the public over a cup of tea.
