The Salvation Army are looking for Transport Volunteers and First Responder Volunteers.
Can you help Winter Night Shelter MK to get the night shelter open? Their homeless guests are desperate to come in from the cold. Their overnight venues are ready, their beds are ready, their cooks are waiting in the wings. Right now, what prevents them from being able to open the Night Shelter service are some remaining essential gaps in their volunteer rotas. Can you help, or spread the word?
