  • Coffee Shop Volunteer
    with Jean Mackie Centre

    Volunteer Opportunity No. VO78390 - Created/last updated: 28/11/2019


    About this opportunity:Jean Mackie Centre offers both overnight respite and day support to older people. The community coffee shop is used by some of those people who attend the centre and by people who live in the local community who often meet there with family and friends. The coffee shop can offer a relaxed atmosphere where people can enjoy a light lunch and a little conversation. Your involvement will ensure that the coffee shop continues to be able to offer this welcoming facility.

    This opportunity is in supporting and maintaining this community coffee shop, serving delicious home-made soups and filled rolls during the lunchtime period. As well as supporting and running the daily function of the coffee shop alongside colleagues, you can expect to meet and chat with many new people, some who attend regularly and those who just pop in when they can. This is an opportunity which will continue throughout the year, and if you are someone who enjoys meeting people (and a little hard work), the Centre would look forward to meeting you.
