Join the team supporting our Community Fridge

Shop work / Retail volunteers needed for New Beginnings Reading in RG1

New Beginnings Reading is a homeless charity based in Reading, UK. We have transformed the Queens Arms pub in Great Knollys Street, which is now used for a number of services, including our Community Fridge project.

The Community Fridge is a drop in service offering a selection of free fresh and non-perishable food to people without the need of a referral to attend.

We are currently looking for individuals who can spare a few hours a week/month to join a team of volunteers who sort and give out free food to those in need of our services.
