Whether you want to help us shape what we do, or simply give your time once in a while, if you want to get involved, there will be a role for you.Our Friday lunch club volunteers play a vital role, supporting with food service, kitchen safety, preparing and cleaning up the venue and most importantly making our lunch clubbers feel welcome. Between January and March 2023 we will also be hosting warm hours on a Friday morning where people can come before for a warm & cosy space with breakfast, hot drinks & the papers. We would love our lunch club volunteers to help out with this as well.
