Volunteer Driver’s Mate

  • VO55262


Description

People from West Lothian, and sometimes further afield, donate unwanted baby and children’s goods to Kidzeco which we prepare for reuse in our Bathgate and Livingston stores. Driver’s mates are a vital part of the team and are required to go out on the van, collecting and delivering any donations.

We are looking for individuals to help the driver load and unload the van. You will meet members of the public and build customer relations and no two days will be the same. It would be desirable if the person would be able to lift heavy items such as cots and wardrobes from and into customer houses.

Organisation aims and objectives

Kidzeco is a community interest company that recycles good quality children's goods i.e. prams, buggies, clothes, books, furniture, toys and more. We also run classes on various forms of crafts, including jewellery making, knitting and patchwork. We are based in Bathgate and have only been opened since February 2010. The profits made through sales are returned to the community to help develop other charities and projects that benefit the local community. We have helped volunteers and customers to raise funds for different events in aide of different causes, and we are always looking for ideas. The newest part of our service is the community room. The community room is used for different things such as children's parties and weekly children's services e.g. babies music classes.
