Organic Arts need drivers

Organic Arts is an educational based in Ide promoting arts and rural issues through educational visits and walks, classes, workshops, community projects, exhibitions and performances.

They're after volunteer drivers to transport adults in a minibus between Exeter and its community garden project.

Volunteers need to spare one to two hours of time and be confident, competent drivers.

Garden sessions run on Wednesdays and Fridays 10.30am-3.30pm with the charity’s minibus used to collect and drop people off at Exeter city centre and Cowick Street.

Organic Arts’ garden project especially benefits people who may have mental health issues, learning difficulties or feel socially isolated.

Volunteers have the opportunity to grow vegetables, look after and develop the large plot, make soup from the produce, or simply enjoy some time-out.

It’s an important place for over 35 volunteers who come each week and would otherwise struggle to get out to the farm.

Organic Arts can offer volunteer drivers reasonable expenses and refreshments, including especially freshly-cooked soup made from the garden vegetables.

Drivers do not need a D1 on their license because the charity has a light minibus that is easier to drive than other models.

 

Please get in touch If you are interested in volunteer driving please email info@organicarts.org.uk or call 01392 811080 (between 10.30am-3.30pm Weds-Fri).
