Tiddlers and Toddlers – Can you help?

We are very much in need of some help at St George’s Hall at 1pm on Mondays to put out tables, chairs and toys for Tiddlers and Toddlers.  Tiddlers and Toddlers meets weekly during term time for the benefit of young children and their families – we rely on volunteers.  Help is needed to bring the toys from the outside shed into the Hall but we will only have 30 minutes to set up and are short of helpers.  If anyone is free and able to help we would be really grateful.

West Berks Foodbank – Can you spare some time?

West Berks Foodbank provides a vital service in offering emergency food parcels for individuals and families who find themselves in need.  Its a brilliant concept and relies on community initiative to run it and volunteers to donate the goods.
West Berks Foodbank hugely appreciate the support they receive from St George’s in terms of food donations, volunteers, and prayers.  There are vacancies for more responsible roles, particularly a Foodbank Centres Manager (for approx 12 hours per week) and more Lead Volunteers for our Newbury Foodbank Centre (managing this for one afternoon per fortnight). If you have some time to offer and would like more details of these roles, then please email Sarah Bennett at info@westberks.foodbank.org.uk
