Volunteers are a vital part of the team at Bridge Cottage. By volunteering with us you will be contributing to the local community in a real and positive way.

Volunteers needed at our charity shop

Join our small and friendly team, sorting donations, steaming clothes, helping customers or using the till.
No experience is necessary, just a willingness to help. We’re very flexible and there are roles to suit all.
Ideally we are looking for volunteers to cover mornings or afternoons, 3 hours a shift, however we are more than happy to be flexible with this.
You’ll be supporting the charity whilst making new friends, having fun and learning new skills.
If this interests you, please pop in for a chat, call us on 01825 766958 or drop us an email at udpscharityshop@gmail.com

Across the Society we have a lovely group of volunteers who keep events running. They do a great job, and without them, we couldn’t do anything. However, there are times when our resources are stretched – holidays, illness or other factors mean that volunteers cannot come in. That’s when it is useful to have more people available. Some of the roles we are looking to cover would be:

Nutley Windmill – looking after visitors at open days and providing support to those who maintain the mill. They work there most Wednesday mornings, so if you would like to discuss joining a working party, pop up there and have a chat.

UDPS Shop – as noted above, we would love to have more people to serve customers, or to sort stock. Someone to help develop our social media sales would also be wonderful.

Bridge Cottage – At local history talks and concerts it would be very useful to have another volunteer taking tickets and/or serving refreshments at busy times. Could you serve refreshments at a market, or help setting up or clearing away? Perhaps you could provide an extra pair of hands at an educational visit. There are also various maintenance jobs to do around the cottage, and another pair of hands here would be very useful.

In each case, you would work alongside an experienced volunteer. You could do as much or as little as suits your circumstances. Please contact Bridge Cottage to find out more. You will be made very welcome!
