Could you donate 2 or 3 hours regularly, for example each week or even just once a month?
Or perhaps you work for a local company and could arrange for a group of employees to support FIND?
We depend on volunteers for all of our work and our team of committed volunteers comes from a variety of backgrounds giving up their time for free.
Volunteers help to sort donated food and other items, collect orders from local shops and make up the food parcels. We also rely on volunteer drivers (Monday to Friday, every afternoon) to make our deliveries.
If you are interested call Maureen on 01473 833351.
FIND relies on cash donations as well as donations of food, furniture and other items in order to provide our services. See the ways you can donate at the bottom of this page.
