Volunteering opportunities!

Gill Sans poster (2)I love the phrase ‘volunteering opportunities’.  It asks people to give of their time, energy and expertise in return for no payment, and presents it in such a way that the person or organisation in need of volunteers appears to be doing the volunteers a favour.

That said, I know there are people who do have time on their hands who would like to do something with it, so…

I can offer opportunities to volunteer!  Specifically it would be good to have a couple of people who could work on a Thursday between 10am and 3pm.  At the moment I can cover the whole time we are open, but in late September one of the other jobs I have will require me to work a shift in the middle of the day on Thursdays.  I would rather try to get cover for this than to close the shop, and so it would be wonderful if there were people who were able to commit to a regular, long-term pattern on a Thursday.  If you are interested – even if you would rather work fortnightly than weekly – do get in touch.

I will also need other volunteers, including people who might want to help out in the evenings when we have events – checking and selling tickets, helping with refreshments, washing up, etc.

If you would like to be part of the Tree House Bookshop, in these or other ways, do let me know.  I can’t afford to pay anyone yet (not even myself, probably!), but there are things I can offer in return – tickets to events, perhaps – payment in kind rather than money.

Send me an email or phone the shop (856843) – I would love to hear from you.

    I could commit to a fortnightly Thursday (and perhaps three out of four as I have a regular monthly commitment on a Thursday). I live in Leamington Spa, have an MA in Creative Writing, blog on writing and mentor coach other writers. Also am drowning in books. Recently gone over to the dark side and bought a Kindle. Can be contacted via my blog or via email at mandydewaal@me.com
