Description

Fair Frome is looking for someone who can spare a few hours a week working for the new furniture bank - a scheme that collects donated furniture and small electrical items and delivers to referred clients. The Volunteer will need to be an experienced driver over 25 with a clean licence, used to driving a long wheel base van and lifting heavy items.

The person should also support the aims and ethos of Fair Frome and be a 'people' person, able to deal empathetically with people undergoing difficult periods in their lives.

We anticipate this would entail doing a half day a week, hours by arrangement.
