Join the 3Cs team and help expand our service

Catering volunteers needed for Caversham Community Cafe (3Cs) in RG4

We are seeking volunteers to join our team, providing a community cafe.

What’s involved?

  • cleaning of tables, floors, equipment, kitchen and toilet areas
  • washing-up, by hand or using a dishwasher
  • serving at the counter, taking details of orders, taking payment, operating cash register, giving change
  • preparing hot drinks
  • preparing snacks
  • using a microwave and electric grill
  • taking food and drink to tables and clearing tables
  • setting out cafe and counter before opening and clearing away at the end of the day
  • training can be given to operate the espresso coffee machine.

No experience needed, but you’ll need to be organised and enjoy meeting people.

The cafe currently opens on Tuesdays only and we are seeking to recruit more volunteers to help on Tuesdays and also to enable the cafe to open on an additional day a week, probably Monday.
