Silverburn are relaunching their Cottage Window take-away Cafe and invite volunteers to come along and help them make bacon rolls, soup, sandwiches, home-baking, barista-style coffee and other hot drinks. Volunteers will receive training on how to use the coffee machine as well as baking skills, dealing with customers and other tasks as required. A food hygiene certificate will also be offered if the volunteer doesn't already have this. Volunteers will also need to handle cash and help clean & clear up (there's an outside sheltered sitting area). The cafe is open 10-2pm Monday to Thursday and ideally you would volunteer for these 4 hours, but 10-12 or 12-2pm is also fine, 1 or more days a week. As in other catering environment, volunteers should have a good level of personal hygiene and presentation. Full training will be given, and expenses are provided.
No details were provided about the training made available to volunteers. Please contact us to find out more.
Out of pocket expenses paid?
Yes - Bus fares reimbursed on production of bus ticket. Mileage reimbursed at 25p per mile.
