    with CHAS Trading (Childrens Hospices Across Scotland) (This is not a Fife-based organisation).

    Volunteer Opportunity No. VO90858 - Created/last updated: 04/10/2022


    About this opportunity:The CHAS Craft Group was set up to bring together CHAS volunteers with a passion for crafting. Volunteers are based all over Scotland, from Aberdeenshire to the Borders and are involved in a variety of craft activities, from knitting to card-making. The group produces craft items to sell at stalls and events throughout the year to raise vital funds to support children with a life-shortening condition across Scotland.

    The Group Lead heads up the group of 10 and is responsible for organising and delivering group activities. This will include co-ordinating delivery of craft items to relevant events and organising monthly online catch-ups with members of the group. The Group Lead does not necessarily need to be a crafter but would be responsible for making arrangements to sell crafts

    All expenses for supplies will be reimbursed. They will be able to arrange for them to be supplied if this is easier for the volunteer.
