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.

The Cats Whiskers

Charity registered in Scotland SC048755

We are a group of cat loving volunteers doing our best to raise funds as a small, local, independent charity: we believe every cat deserves a safe and loving home and our aim is to try to make that happen in the Clackmannanshire area.

Current opportunity

We’re a new charity set up to help with the rescue and rehoming of cats. Our main aim is to build our own centre to do this and our whole team are committed to the care and welfare of cats. We work with other small charities to achieve this and our shop is raising funds to allow us to do this whilst helping rehome cats. Our volunteers work in teams of two at all times in the shop. Serving the public, maintaining stock on shop floor, sorting donations handed into us at shop, keeping shop clean and neat at all times, We do an induction at the shop with every volunteer, find suitable buddy for them, show how to sort donations ie separate, store and trash. They, if needed, will also be taught to operate the till. Our morningshift is 10-1 and afternoon is 1-4. We also need volunteer with a driving licence as we sometimes area asked to collect/deliver things from and to customer. Costs would be reimbursed Able to work with other people, Pleasant, friendly and confident attitude would be advantageous for serving the public and being first point of contact with our charity. Due to handling money and serving public we would ask for the volunteers to be over 18. Due to size of premises at the moment we can’t take someone in a wheelchair. Hopefully in the future
