Short Job Description:

About the Service: The Space Centre is a multi-sensory centre for children and adults with a range of disabilities including Cerebral Palsy, Profound Multiple Disabilities, Autism and brain injuries. Groups come from all over the North West and sometimes even further afield, which demonstrates the need for such a facility.

In order to keep the Space Centre running, each year we need to raise funds to maintain and replace equipment and to subsidise sessions to keep them affordable for all of our service users. We have a dedicated group of fundraisers, Friends of Space, who are the team behind all of our events, community networking and volunteering activities. This Christmas, Friends of Space have organised a Christmas Fair and Grotto at The Space Centre to raise funds for the facility.

Purpose of the role: We are looking for enthusiastic, friendly volunteers to support in the running of stalls at the Christmas Fair and Grotto. As a Christmas Helper you will greet visitors, make refreshments and assist Friends of Space on the stalls.

Suggested Time Commitment: This is a short term, one off volunteering opportunity, which runs over two days from 9:00am-5:00pm on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December. Whether you’d like to help out for a couple of hours or the two full days we’d like to hear from you.
