We are looking for an enthusiastic volunteer to help us run our preloved clothes sale in April. It’s the perfect role if you’re trying to break into the charity or environmental sector, or perhaps you’ve recently retired and have lots of skills to offer.

The main criteria are an interest in the work we do and the drive to turn that interest into running a fantastic event, securing donations and sponsorship from our supporters.

We ran our first clothes sale last year and we’d love to see it become an annual event in Penrith’s social calendar. You would manage all aspects of the clothes sale, working with our staff and other volunteers to recruit sellers, advertise the sale, organise the event, decorate the venue and make sure everyone has fun on the night.

You’ll be using your initiative, multi-tasking and learning on the job. Our experienced team will support and train you, cover your travel expenses, and even provide cake from time to time!

Ideally you will be able to commit to around a day a week from now until mid-April. And if you enjoy the experience, we’d love you to stay on and help with other events. Contact us for an informal chat or to find out more: office@cafs.org.uk or 01768 210276.
