We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.
Please note, organisations are currently experiencing a large volume of enquiries from people looking to help out. They may not always be able to meet this demand so please be patient, you may not receive a quick response or be assigned to a role.
This recently established charity, is looking for a volunteer willing to work a few hours each week to co-ordinate our publicity requirements in order to recruit volunteers, members and to let potential users of the garden know what we do.
The successful candidate should be fluent in using social media, and should be able to keep our website and Facebook page up to date, as well as meeting members of the public. You would work closely with the Board, and you may choose to become a Board member, which would be helpful, but not essential. The charity is based in Woodside Walled Garden, Ancrum, Jedburgh. This is a voluntary position, with expenses being paid out on request.
