Current Requirements

Volunteer Delivery Drivers

We are looking for volunteers to deliver emergency food parcels to people's homes across the District (Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay) mainly on a Monday morning but also a Wednesday and Friday morning as well.  Drivers go out in pairs so please apply with someone in mind that you can car share with (who would also need to complete a volunteer application).  There is a rota so it won't necessarily be every week, unless that is what you want. Fuel expenses can be paid at a rate of 45p a mile. When applying please indicate preferred day.  Thank you

Volunteer packers

We are looking for volunteers to help the delivery team pack parcels on a Monday morning between 9am and 11 pm. We may need helpers on other days as well, so please get in touch.

Volunteer Photographer

We are looking for a volunteer photographer who could take some initial stock photos in our warehouse and be there in the future to take professional pictures during special campaigns and when we are out an about at events and talks. For more information and a chat please get in touch.
