Do you enjoy driving and have a driving licence? Are you physically fit? Do you enjoy getting out and about? Are you available 1-2 days a week? If so, this role could be for you. 

Link to Hope is a Christian charity with almost 30 years experience of reaching out a helping hand to poor and marginalised people in Eastern Europe and bring hope to people who would otherwise have none.

We have six furniture and charity shops to help raise funds - in Goring, Littlehampton, Portslade, Worthing, Rustington and Ferring. These have recently reopened after being closed during the COVID-19 lockdown.   

We now need more volunteer drivers for our furniture vans.

Your role will be to:

  • Drive our 3.5 tonne van to collect donated furniture from homes and deliver furniture to customers.
  • Load and unload the van with the help of another volunteer who will travel with you. 


Skills

You don't need to have done this kind of work before. We welcome people from all kinds of backgrounds. 

You must:

  • Be physically fit and able to lift furniture in and out of a van. 
  • Have a standard driving licence. 
  • Be able to get to our offices in Park Road, Worthing as this is where we start our day. 

Benefits

  1.  The chance to get out and about around the area.
  2.  The opportunity to gain experience to help with a job search, if that's relevant for you.
  3.  Meeting new people. 

Practical Considerations

We are taking all necessary precautions to keep our staff, volunteers and customers safe from COVID-19. We will train you in these procedures and provide full PPE.

When do I need to be available?

Details Ideally we are looking for people who can volunteer for 2 days a week but we are flexible so please get in touch if you're interested and we will try to help you fit this role around your other commitments.
