Here’s your chance to make a real difference to the young people of Twyford. We are keen to welcome volunteers to help ensure the continued success of youth work in the area.
There are many different roles available and opportunities for people who can offer different levels of commitment and varying skill sets. Training would be offered for all of these roles. Currently we would like people to help with:
Fundraising: We are always keen to try new fundraising ideas. Can you suggest anything and help us implement it?
Pop-up kitchen: Could you offer an hour or two on Saturday mornings to serve drinks and bacon rolls from our brand new kitchen to users of King George V playing field (particularly the Twyford Comets and visiting teams)?
Events organiser: We need help promoting the Youth Centre at village events such as the Twyford Together Fun Run, the Donkey Derby, Twyfest and the Christmas Fayre.
Tuck Shop: Could you serve at the tuck shop at Youth Club on a Wednesday evening 7.15-9.15pm?
Health & Safety: Could you help by doing a visual check of the building, following a list we will provide, and notifying the trustees if any action is needed?
Safeguarding: Can you assist the trustees in keeping our records up to date?
Minutes Secretary: Could you take the minutes at the trustees meetings held every other month and type them up? This would be such a huge help to the secretary.
Trustees: The current trustees have established the new charity and successfully manasged the transfer from Wokingham Borough Council to the new charity (a CIO). We are looking to recruit trustees to move into the next phase which is building up the Youth Club for the benefit of young people from Twyford, Ruscome and Charvil. The trustees meet every other month on the second Tuesday of the month (7.30-9pm).
Thank you so much for considering volunteering with us. We look forward to hearing from you.
