Upcycling Volunteer

  • VO77750


Description

Moray Reach Out is a charity that runs several social enterprises that provide work and training opportunities to vulnerable adults throughout Moray. We are looking for volunteers to help support our vulnerable adults. For our projects, communication skills and empathy are essential.
Moray Reach Out's Upcycling Project takes discarded wooden pallets from local business and turns them into saleable house and garden items. Pallets are taken apart, the planks sanded, measured, sawn and made up into decorative boxes, shelving and planters for the garden. All carried out using hand tools, suitable for varying skills and ability.
To volunteer for this project, it would be preferred if you have basic DIY skills, so these can be transferred to help our vulnerable adults. These would include using a handsaw, hammering nails, and using simple power tools such as cordless drills and sanders.
Please bring your own overalls if you can!
