SARSVL will be holding a bag packing day at Moortown Sainsburys on 18th December 2013 to raise funds for the centre, and we’re calling out for volunteers to help staff the event. It promises to be a fun day and a great opportunity for SARSVL to raise awareness of our services as well as some funds.

Volunteers of all genders are welcome, so rope in your friends, families and co-workers – anyone with a couple of hours to spare! The store is open 7am till 11pm, and we’d love to have a presence all day, so we need lots of volunteers to make it work.

If you have two or more hours available and would like to help, please get in touch with event organiser Sophie at or 0113 243 9102 with your availability, t-shirt size, and a contact phone number and email address. Please also let us know if you would prefer to pack customers groceries, hold a collection tin or run our tombola, and if you have any access needs.

Volunteers should support our aims and values, and it’s good to have a general idea of what we do, but there is no specialist knowledge required and SARSVL women will be on hand to answer any questions. Our values can be found here along with information about us.

Even if you can’t make the event, please share this call out and our Facebook event with your friends and family, and encourage them to do the same. The more people we can reach the better!

We also need prizes for our tombola, so if you are able to donate any items such as cosmetics, toys, handmade gifts etc we would be very grateful. No age restricted items such as alcohol please, as the tombola will be open to children.

If you have any questions about the event please contact Sophie on the contact details given above. Please note that Sophie works Mon/Tues/Thurs only, so if you need to contact her outside office hours please either email or leave a message, and she will get back to you.

 We look forward to hearing from you!
