We redistribute food, which would end up in waste, to non-profit organisation in Tayside and Fife. These groups than provide meals for people who are experiencing food poverty, social isolation or other hardship.
We need people who can give a few hours to help sort and pick food. This is a vital part of providing this valuable service to thousands of individuals in need. Working as part of a team, you would carry out basic warehousing by checking and sorting food prior to picking orders for delivery.
If you are reasonably fit and able bodied and can give a few hours you could make a real difference to a project that is so important to so many.
Cumbernauld Living Landscape are setting up new weekly volunteer groups in Cumbernauld to improve green spaces. Work to be carried out in the future includes meadow sowing, woodland management, path building and much more!
Volunteering is a great way to get fit and experience the outdoors from a different perspective. It also provides an opportunity to meet new people from a range of backgrounds. We also aim to help volunteers with their own personal development – we can give access to free training courses and Personal Protective Equipment(PPE) if a volunteer stays with us for 3 months.
These groups will run every Tuesday and Wednesday from 10- 3, starting from the 3rd of September 2019. Volunteers can sign up for 1 or 2 days a week depending on their preference. Volunteers must be over 16.
Who can resist the chance to help restore a 'lost' 15th century walled garden here in Edinburgh? Or to get fit without paying gym costs? We are keen to recruit volunteers for a wide variety of gardening tasks. You don't have to have specific gardening skills – enthusiasm counts. A wide variety of tasks are involved in the restoration project – digging, clearing, weeding, planting, laying bases for greenhouse and composting toilet, making tea, helping with planning, harvesting seasonal produce.
Come along and help at our cinema event and get to watch a newly released cinema blockbuster for free.
As a volunteer you will possibly be helping with seating, taking tickets and helping to make peoples experience a happy one, showing people where exits and toilets are and enjoying the film!!
