Local Charity Calls For Volunteers To Help With Leaflet Distribution
Do you have a few hours to spare to help distribute leaflets in your parish for this great cause?
Hands of Hope, (the charity using growing and cooking healthy, nutritious food to tackle childhood obesity and loneliness) is asking the community to turn their preloved into reloved to help them raise funds by auction.
But to get the message out they need volunteers who could help with the distribution of leaflets to the community. Could this be you?
With Childhood Obesity and Loneliness being two of the biggest challenges in the 21st Century, the organisation will tackle these through developing their scheme at their newly acquired site in Hawkhurst, making it a place to grow, learn, meet and enjoy.
But first they need to raise more funds and are asking for contributions of surplus items which will then be auctioned from Rye Auction Rooms and on Ebay. These could be coins, rugs, antiques, books, furniture, vintage clothes, glassware…well virtually anything of value…these could be turned into cash to benefit the community.
Please contact the team on the links below if you could help their mail drop, and you can also find out about longer term positions too if this interests you. There are plenty of varied roles available, from Community Ambassadors, cooking, growing, fundraising and so much more; there is something for just about everyone!
Hands of Hope
…aims to reconnect people with where their food comes from, teach them how to grow and cook healthy and nutritious food and use this process to ultimately reduce childhood obesity and also loneliness in older people.
Currently farming 4 acres of organic land in Peasmarsh, the charity needs to raise £1.4m to develop an 18 acre site in Hawkhurst, Kent, ‘The Wall’. They will create a kitchen garden, a cooking school, greenhouse, seminar room and more. The site will also serve as a valuable community and activity centre for young children families and the elderly.
