What have Reps done this week, and what's on the agenda next week?
As a small charity, UCWH rely on the skills and time of supporters to ensure they can continue with their vital work. Some of the roles can be carried out from your home, others require you to go to their office in University Hospital. From bringing in a few collection boxes from shops near to where you live to photographing our events, scanning documents to promoting our lottery there are many ways you can help.
FareShare relies on volunteers and anticipates it will need many more people to help in the warehouses, vans and offices to create food orders and deliver them to charity and community partners. Anyone who is able to support those more vulnerable than themselves and is willing to help in the warehouse, office or on the vans, can register to show their interest.
