Volunteering

Have you thought about volunteering at the Community Centre?

We are always looking for people that might help us with a bit of admin or in the Op Shop? It’s a great way to spend a few hours in helping your community and enjoying yourself.

We are always looking for people that might have a couple of hours to spare. The Op Shop is easy, gentle work (we get the Manager and the Chairman of the Management Board to do the hard yards!), very sociable – you get to chat a lot and keep the local cafes busy making takeaway coffees!

No, seriously – our volunteers take great pride in what they do and some of their comments are worth reading…

“It is so good for us to be volunteers”.

“This is such a positive thing to be involved with”.

“Great for our community”.

“A good break from home life!”

“COS has saved a lot of marriages, and is cheaper than marriage guidance! It keeps us sane.”

“Confucius says ‘he who volunteers, stays married.’”

“Absolutely fantastic to be involved with wonderful people who help as volunteers. The customers have been great.”

“Everyone brings their own skills – you can see a difference in the shop on every day”.

“It inspires you to get out of bed and on with the day.”

We have a two monthly committee meeting to discuss issues and suggestions, and always get a great turn out of our members.

Come and talk to us any time about volunteering. We can guarantee some fun, great bargains in the Op Shop and a great social time for you. Our Op Shop volunteers will always be happy to share their thoughts with you.
