Volunteer with us! October 01, 2017 12:00

We are currently looking for volunteers in the below areas.

At our shop…
Our pop-up on Pimlico Road is not your typical charity shop, overrun with bric-a-brac and last years “must-have” silver puffa jacket. Our pop-up shop is styled with our best selling products in an exclusive part of town and relies on a network of volunteers to sell our products and help our customers with their purchases. We are always in need of more volunteers to help keep our doors open. If you have time to spare in the run-up to Christmas, please contact us.

At an event…
We host stands at a wide range of events throughout the year, and are constantly looking for support in running them. Coming up, we have the week long Spirit of Christmas fair at Kensington Olympia. Not only do we have stand, but as we are the charity partner of the year, we are also manning the events “Shop & Drop” service. If you would like to help out with either of these, please get in touch.

Run your own event…
Finding opportunities to sell our beautiful products is one of our biggest challenges – and this is where you could help! If you would like to host an event – at your home, at a local craft show or a Christmas fair then we’d love to hear from you. Contact events@finecellwork.co.uk to discuss.

Become a mentor…
Our Open the Gate project supports stitchers back into employment upon their release from prison. Through accredited training and careful mentoring, we want to empower our apprentices to live crime-free lives. Could you mentor an ex-prisoner and help them find work and manage their income? If so, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with apprentices@finecellwork.co.uk.

Help us grow our Turkey Farm…
Every Tuesday morning our office is filled with an amazing team of volunteers who help to prepare kits to send to volunteers to take into prison and distribute to our stitchers. Famous for the way they put together our Turkey Christmas Decoration kits, they need your help. If you are London based, a keen stitcher, can cut fabric or know your way around a needlepoint chart – get in touch!
