Large Goods Delivery Crew required!

Want to get out and about with like minded people and help asylum seekers? We need more people to assist with our Large Goods delivery runs. The work involves picking up furniture donations, and delivering them to asylum seekers. You need to be fit, have a current Working With Children Check and be available for runs that usually take three hours. They are currently on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 10 and 1, but this is not locked in and could be at other times to suit crews regular availability. The van only requires a car licence. It is automatic and easy to drive, just a bit big. Not everyone needs to drive though as there will be two or three people on the crew.

Want to know more? We would love to hear from you!
