Seasonal Food Stop Volunteers 

Our Food Stop is helping up to 250 people each month and we are expecting to be busy over Christmas.

The Food Stop is run almost entirely by volunteers, we’re looking for one or two extra people to help each day to help with increased demand, incoming donations, and to cover for anyone who is away.

We’re looking for people who are able to help between Monday 16th December to Friday 3rd January.

Hairdressers & Beauticians

We’re looking for hairdressers and beauticians to visit Engage to pamper our clients. If you’re interested and free at any point in December, or over the Christmas week then please get in touch!

Pop-Up Shop

Our Pop-Up Clothes Shop is popular every year so we’re bringing it back! We are looking for people who are free over the Christmas week to help set-up and run the shop.

All the clothing donations we receive before Christmas are displayed in a warm and friendly environment to create a fun shopping experience!

Kitchen Help

The Kitchen at Mayfield House needs help prepping and clearing up after lunch on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

We are looking for people who can help from 10am – 12:30pm and 3:30pm – 5:30pm on those days.
