Befriending – this is probably one of our most important jobs and takes place on our two day event over Christmas Day and Boxing day. Taking time to simply sit quietly with our guests. Talking to them and taking time to listen to what they have to say.
Hosting – engaging with our guests throughout the 2 day event and answering their queries and directing them to the appropriate areas within the venue.
Clothing store – sorting and assisting with restocking of the clothing as well as distributing it to our guests at the two day open event.
Hamper packing – packing over 600 hampers with tins and packets of food which will be delivered to recipients in Hastings, Bexhill and surrounding areas.
Hamper Delivery – drivers and delivery teams are needed to deliver the packed hampers to the recipients.
Tea Bar – Our tea bars is often the first port of call for our guests when they arrive and help is required with serving hot and cold drinks as well as snacks to our guests. The tea bar also runs during hamper week when you will be responsible for providing refreshments to the other volunteers.
Catering – Hot and cold food preparation is needed for the two day event. Volunteers for this section will need catering experience, and be able to demonstrate that they have a current food hygiene certificate.
