Kirkmichael Shop and Café is a small, friendly organisation run by a combination of paid and volunteer staff. There are always at least two people on at one time and the volunteer shifts tend to be three hours long. The main activities are serving in the Shop and Café, greeting and helping customers, stocking the shelves, light cleaning and food and drinks preparation [optional] .
Our volunteer cinema helpers support us in setting up the venue (the Carrick Centre, Maybole), meeting and greeting visitors, collecting tickets, etc.
If required, they may be asked to introduce the film and help out with the distribution and sale of refreshments.
The Drop in Centre is held every Wednesday in Loans Village Hall between 13:30 and 16:15 and it urgently needs two new volunteers so that it can keep running. One volunteer is stepping down now and the other at the end of the year due to failing health.
This would involve buying cakes and milk, keeping the receipts, collecting money and serving tea to some of the more elderly members of our Community. For some of the locals who come along, it’s the only day of the week that they get out.
If you’re interested in helping out then feel free to drop-in yourself when one of the sessions are running so you can see first hand what it’s all about.
We are currently seeking volunteers to assist in our tea bar at Ayr Hospital. The service we provide is open to patients, visitors and staff who are all grateful for the work done by the volunteers.
