Can you lend a hand?

We are looking for volunteers to help us in the week of the 29th October to the 2nd November.

This is heavy manual work and so we are looking for people who are able to help lift and shift boxes, furniture, shelving and general awkwardly shaped things. This could include carrying items downstairs and/or loading trolleys or vehicles, or carrying them along Portswood Road from the old shop to the new shop.

Key info:
Dates: Monday 29th October to Friday 2nd November
Times: 3 hours shifts of 9.30 -12.30 and 2.00 - 5.00 daily PLUS evening shifts of 6.30 - 9pm
Essential: You must be able to lift and carry boxes full of books/food/office supplies. (look out for other announcements about other ways to help if this one isn't for you)

Interested? Contact us at to book your slot by 25th October.
