Volunteering & Donating

 

 

We run our own in-house projects, such as Community Cafe & Supper Nights, Community Job Club & English Classes.  If you would like to support us by volunteering at Community Cafe or Job Club, please call into the office for a chat ( Mon-Fri 9.30 am – noon).

These projects are run by our highly-valued volunteers, but each project needs funds to keep them running.  Grant funding from outside sources is being cut, so if you would like to help our community by ensuring the continuation of these services, with a personal donation, or sponsorship from your business or company, please contact susan@millendcc.co.uk or telephone her on 01923 493344.  Community Job Club would welcome a regular sponsor from the business quarter.

In addition, we are experimenting with a new way of donating when you shop online.  Easyfundraising.org.uk has linked up with major retailers and travel companies, so that if you shop via the link below, rather than the retailer’s own website, you can donate to us:

We wish to continue serving our local community through our cafe / evening supper activities and also in helping individuals who enrol in our Job Club to gain in self-confidence; to understand that they matter and that they have something of value to offer both their local community  and to a potential employer; to discover and polish the skills they have to offer an employer.  We give one to one help to those seeking our assistance in their journey to employment; we help people in a variety of circumstances, from the age of 18- 60+. This is something that Job Centre Plus does not offer.  In addition, we encourage volunteering as a way to increase confidence and skills and when possible, offer volunteering opportunities in our cafe; in job club and in admin.  For those whose English is their 2nd language, we can refer individuals to our new English for beginners classes; in turn, this will also help them in securing employment as well as helping them to settle in to life here in the community.

We thank you for your support in our endeavours to help Mill End Community come together and thrive!
