Wild Goose: Volunteer van driver needed

Our volunteer van drivers play a pivotal role in providing food for homeless people in Bristol. They give up their morning once a week to make sure the Wild Goose has enough to feed whoever might come in that day.

Could you join our fleet of drivers? We'd love to hear from you if you're interested.

Here's a brief description of the role:

Each weekday morning at 8am, a volunteer van driver arrives at the Wild Goose, collects food crates and then drives the CCM van to Costco in Avonmouth to collect food donations. They then return to the Wild Goose, where they'll help unload and put away food in the storerooms, typically finishing around 11am. Volunteer van drivers need to have a full (and preferably clean) driving licence, as well as being physically fit and able to lift crates.


Please contact Steve Smith, our Volunteers Coordinator, if you think you can help. Email him at [email protected] or call him on 0117 405 7112.
