Are you happy to volunteer using your own vehicle? Do you have a few hours a week to spare and enjoy meeting people? If you’re an active person looking for a flexible volunteer driver role then come and join our friendly team. Without Volunteer Stock Collection Drivers we can’t collect our generous donors’ items, and our shops won’t be able to Beat Heartbreak Forever.
We need help now more than ever to collect donated items from our supporters when they are unable to bring them into our shop themselves. You will need to be physically fit and active for this driver role due to the lifting and carrying of donation bags in and out of the vehicle.
It will be your responsibility to ensure that you have a full, valid driving licence and that your vehicle is correctly insured for carrying out collections of BHF donations – don’t worry, we can help you with this. You’ll use your own vehicle and travel will be reimbursed at the HMRC rate (currently 45p per mile).
Typical tasks include:
•Collecting stock/ donations from people’s houses, local businesses or our clothing banks and delivering them to your local shop.
• Transferring stock between shops on a local level as needs require
• Following BHF guidelines on Covid-safe collections and personal safety
