Volunteer needed!

We are looking for a volunteer who would like to do some home based administration work on our Feock Local Transport Scheme which helps local people get out and about, to places like the Doctors, Dentist, Hairdressers etc.. The role would involve around 7 to 8 hours work a week but this is dependent on how many requests for lifts the scheme receives, some weeks it may be less. Requests are quite ad hoc so the work would need doing when requests are received so it’s ‘half an hour here and there’ rather than a few hours in one go as often requests for a lift are received with less than 24 hours notice. You will need be able to check your emails regularly throughout the day to pick up requests
