Product Sorting Volunteer
Cold Weather Assistance Campaign
Could you help those who are forced to be out in the cold?
Are you good at organising?
Come and join our network of Cold Weather Assistance volunteers!
Volunteers are needed to give as much time as they can to support our Cold Weather Assistance Campaign to ensure that vulnerable people are kept warm in the bad weather. We are working in partnership with Colchester Borough Council, Essex Fire and Rescue Service and voluntary sector groups to provide support for those in need in our community.
Your duties will include, but not be limited to, the following:
- Sorting donated items (which will include moving/lifting moderately heavy items e.g. sacks of donated clothing and footwear)
- Separating and organising all donations into appropriate categories (i.e. by age, gender)
- Ensuring that all items are in good condition and are not damaged
- Ensure that Hygiene, Health and Safety, and Fire Regulations are adhered to at all times
You will need to be flexible in terms of time commitment and to be able to move and lift potentially heavy items.
