Volunteer Sundays

Volunteers at Work

Our Volunteer Sundays take place on the second Sunday in each month from October through June. We work at a variety of locations in the Lower Crane Valley, and whatever age or ability we have a way in which each individual can help. We encourage people to join us for an hour, the whole day, or just say hello and find out what we are up to. Old clothes and stout footwear are recommended.

Volunteer Sundays normally start at 10.30 and end by 16.00.  If you can stay all day please bring along some lunch - we provide drinks. Or come along for an hour or two to see what we get up to.

For safety reasons under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.  FORCE's Safeguarding Policy.
