A project supporting people struggling during the Coronavirus pandemic has gained funding to employ someone to host and co-ordinate drop-off sessions for six months.
The Pudsey Community Project is looking to employ someone on a short-term part-time basis to help them manage their six-days-a-week project sessions at Pudsey Parish Church.
This person would manage a team of volunteers, oversee the preparation of food parcels and their delivery, and receive food donations. The session worker would need to be available for the hours 9am-1pm, Monday to Saturday.
Posting on social media, the project wrote:
“We are looking for a responsible person to host and coordinate our drop-off sessions for a six-month period. This person would manage a team of volunteers, oversee the preparation of food parcels and their delivery, and receive donations of food to the project.”
The session worker would be based at Pudsey Parish Church. The project is asking for competent IT skills and experience working in a community or charity setting is essential.
The project experienced a surge in demand before Christmas and is also appealing for donated food.
It is open at Pudsey Parish Church each Monday to Saturday 10am-12noon (or you can donate at St John’s Farsley Church Hall on Thursdays 10-12, or the New Inn in Calverley on Saturdays 10-12).
The project takes all kinds of food but especially are in need of cereals, crisps, tinned meats (including meat-based meals), puddings (sponge puddings, custard, rice pudding etc), bottles of squash – or if you’re donating directly at Pudsey Parish Church then it would take loaves of bread, blocks of cheese, packs of ham, apples, and bottles of milk.
