Join our team and help us put smiles on Children’s faces

Trustee / Committee volunteers needed for Reading Family Aid

Join our Team of Enthusiastic Volunteers and put some Smiles on Children’s faces

Reading Family Aid has been helping disadvantaged families in Reading for over 60 years by taking them on outings and by providing toys at Christmas.

We organise 3-4 outings each year taking about 500 family members in total to theme parks, zoos, activity centres and the panto.

The Toys and Teens Appeal is one of Reading’s major projects where thousands of toys are donated, sorted and packed up for hundreds of disadvantaged Reading families.

We are looking for more energetic and enthusiastic people to help us to continue our work.

If you have good admin and organisational skills and are comfortable using a computer for Email, Word and Excel we need you!

Or if you are happy to help out with outings, summer fetes, car boot sales or the Toy Project then why not come and join us?

Our motto is “To put a smile on the face of a child” – can you help us do that?
