We appreciate and value the support given to us at RGA by volunteers. Our volunteers help and support our residents, garden, social enterprise projects and charity to grow and develop. They become part of the community, which is at the heart of River Garden.
If you are interested in catering, you can volunteer at our Bothy Cafe. Some of the duties that you might enjoy doing are:
- Serving customers
- Washing up
- Supporting events
"I was only in for a cappuccino and a scone and, nearly a year later, I am still here! I have found my “vocation” as the dishwasher! Yes!! The simple but absolutely essential dishwasher. The friendly, appreciative residents who have become friends make my time at RGA a very happy place and I consider myself very lucky to have found this wonderful and life-changing community." - Elisabeth
"Having visited River Garden Café after reading its rave reviews, I decided to pay a visit to the grounds and Café. It did not disappoint. Being a coffee and cake connoisseur I was delighted... The customer service was excellent and everyone was so friendly. I chatted away to staff, volunteers and the residents, who were all so keen to tell me more about the project and share their stories. I decided, without reservation, to become a volunteer and hoped they'd accept me. I was delighted when they did, and haven't looked back since. It's such a lovely place to work. I'm part of the bakery team and also work front of house a couple of times a week. Being part of such a wonderful and happy team gives me a real sense of belonging. It brings fun and fulfilment to my life and connects me to my community." - Sandra
