A lot of these projects involve talking about and demonstrating the basics of first aid to community groups that can include children, young people, and vulnerable adults.

We take in preloved items on the Friday night, set up a massive one stop shop for the sale on Saturday morning and clear it all away again. We have 3 volunteer shifts available , 6pm-9.30pm on Friday, 9am-1pm and 1pm-4pm on the Saturday. We ask that you try to do at least two out of the three shifts but please get in touch with if you are able to help at all within those times. As well as a lovely 'pot luck lunch' and the feel good buzz of volunteering, volunteers do get advanced shopping on the Friday night or before the sale on the Saturday morning.
We are 100% run by volunteers, selling items on behalf of local parents.
Come help us provide parents with affordable, high quality preloved items and raise money to support local parents at the same time.
Babies are very welcome to attend with parents, but we do ask they are in slings during the sale as it is very busy.
We welcome anyone working on their Saltire awards
Volunteers are essential to the running of Strathmore Cricket Club enabling children, young people and adults to get involved whilst increasing the participation in this great sport.
Do you have skills in any of these areas and want to help a local sports organisation provide sports and social opportunities for people of all ages? There are various roles that you can get involved in as a Governance & Administration Volunteer:
- committee member
- finance and general administration
- volunteer coordinator
- outreach/business development and sponsorship
An interest in finance, administration and organising events would be a real bonus in this role so if you would like to help out, get in touch.
Are you a Cricket fan? Want to get involved through volunteering.
Like all sports, cricket needs people who take on organisational and officiating roles to make it possible for others to play. Every match played requires a host of volunteer input to make them run smoothly so whether you want to get involved as a Scorer, Umpire, Match Secretary, Coaches and assistants, Captains, Parental Liaison, Schools, Volunteer driver there will always be an opportunity for you?
We currently have opportunities for people to become involved in:
· Scoring – keeping match scores, maintaining statistics etc.
· Umpiring- the cricket equivalent of refereeing
We run two adult teams which play on Saturdays, Sundays and on some mid-week evenings and are looking to recruit scorers and umpires for both teams.
These opportunities would be suitable for people who have an interest in sport, but do not wish to participate as players. They provide an opportunity to be part of the team, without taking part in the more physical elements of the game. There are established pathways in these disciplines that allow people to progress from officiating at local clubs through to international sport. Get in touch to start your volunteering journey at Strathmore Cricket Club.

Helping out in a BB group with children and young people can make all the difference to young lives – meaning happier young people, happier communities and a society that values the contribution that we can all make; young, old or in-between. We call our volunteers “leaders” because they guide a course for children and young people.
Many of our volunteers say they’ve learned things through their involvement with BB that have helped them to get new jobs or even change career. This would be ideal for someone undergoing Teacher Training. For example, as well as helping out in a local BB group, you might like to train as a Trainer and help run courses for other volunteers. Once you volunteer there’s a whole world of opportunities for you to participate in within our movement – locally, nationally or internationally.
