Do you want to organize a worth while volunteering day out from the office for you and your colleagues? If so, you would be most welcome to come and volunteer as a group at our lovely little ‘hidden gem’ in the middle of Brockwell Park.
We can provide you with a specific list of tasks that we would like you to do 2 to 3 weeks before your volunteering day. We will aim to have some lighter, some more heavy tasks on offer and allow participants to swap between jobs if they would like to during the course of the day.
We normally ask for a per head contribution for company volunteers to cover the costs, administration of the event and to make a contribution to the charity.
The easiest week day for us is a Thursday but we can also accommodate volunteers on Fridays. Weekends are great for us but are usually not possible for employee volunteering. Mondays to Wednesdays are trickier for us because of school bookings and family workshops but may be possible on specific days.
We will supply tools, gloves and all materials needed to complete the jobs. If your group have their own gardening gloves, they might like to bring these. Also they should of course wear sensible outdoor shoes and clothes that they don’t mind getting mucky! Bring sun hats and cream, and water bottles, if it’s a warm day.
We will always have at least two people from BPCG on site on the day dedicated to supervising your group of volunteers.
We have full public liability insurance. We have Risk Assessments available covering all tasks and general site use. If you would like to see any of these, please let us know.
Before any work starts, our staff will give all your team appropriate instructions on using tools on the day and carrying out tasks to ensure that everything is done safely.
If you would like to have a site visit before your actual volunteering day to assess the place and the tasks, this is fine. Just let us know and we can book you in.
We can supply home made soup, bread and salad lunch to groups of volunteers made from ingredients from our gardens. Or volunteers are welcome to make other arrangements if they would prefer.
