Thank you very much for your interest. Currently we need more Sorters/Stackers, Packers and Refreshment Volunteers at our Distribution Centre in central Purley, and also more Supermarket Collectors.

  • Sorters/Stackers: Monday mornings (9.30am - 12.00noon) and Tuesday evenings (7.30pm - 9.00pm) at the Distribution Centre at Purley United Reformed Church, 906 Brighton Road, Purley CR8 2LN. Working within a small team, volunteers sort donated food/toiletries and date-label items and stack the shelves ready for the clients coming to the Food Hub on Wednesday and Saturday.

  • Packers: Wednesday and Saturday mornings* (9.30am - 12.30pm) at the Distribution Centre (occasionally on a Wednesday evening 6.30pm - 9.30pm). Working with three or four others, packers select the food/toiletries for the client and their family. (*on a rota basis)

  • Refreshment Volunteers: Wednesday and Saturday mornings* (9.30am - 12.30pm) at the Distribution Centre (occasionally on a Wednesday evening 6.30pm - 9.30pm). Volunteers serve clients and family members with tea, coffee, squash and biscuits and often engage with clients too, if they are happy to do so. (*on a rota basis)

  • Supermarket Collectors: Regular collections are held on Saturdays at local supermarkets. During a one-hour shift, volunteers ask customers as they enter the store if they would kindly donate an item or two from our latest most-needed list.
