Volunteer with GALE

If you have a spare hour or two and would like to do something worthwhile for your local community then volunteering for GALE could be the answer.  We have a whole range of volunteering opportunities that could really make a difference in our community. If you would like to register your interest, please fill out the form here and either return it to the GALE Centre or send to tania@galeteam.co.uk

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Current Opportunities - Summer 2015

  • Supported Volunteering - we're currently short of helpers for our supported volunteering project as there is demand for longer and more frequent placements which sadly we can't fulfill due to a shortage of volunteer support.  
  • Gairloch and District Show - the show relies on huge volunteer effort to pull it off each year.  We've got something for everyone including providing stewarding support to the judges, selling raffle tickets on the door, serving refreshments, helping display exhibits and setting up the hall.  The 2015 Show takes place on Saturday 22nd August and hlepers are required all day as well as for set up on the Friday (21st) night.

Ongoing Volunteering Opportunites with GALE - All Year Round

  • Fundraising events - we organise a range of fundraising coffee mornings and events throughout the year to help support local charities and good causes.  We need folk to help us organise and run these events.
  • Spend a morning or afternoon at The GALE Centre welcoming visitors to the community and ensuring they have a wonderful stay and want to return soon.  The Centre is also a great place to meet people and have a blether while providing an important local service.  
  • Help out at the annual Gairloch & District Show either on show day itself or by joining the working group to help with all the pre-show preparation.
  • Spend half a day at one of our Community Markets helping with the cafe.  You’ll even get a chance to wander round the market, chat to customers and sample a cake – or two! 
  • Become a board member of GALE and be involved in the management decisions of GALE at the quarterly meetings.
  • Help keep our website up to date by writing articles and news stories
  • We always have lots of administrative jobs to be done such as printing leaflets and fliers, writing letters, entering statistics and financial figures on our computer system and much more.

Whatever your skills or however much time you have available we will probably have a job for you.  Please do contact us if you feel you can help in any way.
