Could you see yourself driving a Tuk Tuk around the streets of Aberdeen? Would you like to help CFINE deliver an exciting new project? Then this could be just the opportunity for you! CFINE are looking for volunteers to get involved in our latest initiative. ‘Tuk In’ is a mobile community café that will be run out of the back of an electric Tuk Tuk, using fresh in date food that would have otherwise been destined for landfill, it will visit various community hubs around the city. ‘Tuk In’ will combat food poverty and food waste, and it will also make services available through CFINE accessible to customers. We need Drivers, Cooks, and Servers for this exciting project and all help is greatly appreciated. If you are interested, email Sean on smcveigh@cfine.org or call on 01224596156
