New Hope enjoys the support of around 130 regular volunteers and, each year, more than 200 people will volunteer in some way.

General Drivers

The Reason

New Hope’s shops generate crucial income for our services to people in housing crisis in Watford. At present we have a shortage of drivers to pick up and deliver furniture donations and items to our shops and services. 

The Role

Drivers collect goods from residential and business premises using our New Hope vehicle, and then deliver them to our shops and services.  

The Right Volunteer

Drivers must be over 25 and have no more than three points on their driving license. The right volunteer must also be able to lift heavy bags,  boxes and furniture, and be available at least one morning or afternoon per week. Some flexibility is desirable as donations are sometimes offered to us at short notice.

The Reward

New Hope Drivers play a crucial role in keeping the flow of donations moving from the local community through our shops and into crucial funds for our work with local people in housing need. Therefore Drivers will gain a huge sense of satisfaction knowing they are fulfilling an important role ensuring that we can respond to the generosity of supporters and turn it into funds that regenerate lives here in Watford.
