WHAT IS A ONE-OFF?

*ALL ACTIVITIES ARE COVID SECURED, RISKS ASSESMENTS VARY FOR DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES AND WILL BE SENT OUT ACCORDINGLY, 3 DAYS BEFORE PROJECT TAKES PLACE*

 

A One-Off is a volunteering opportunity which only takes place once, unlike regular projects which have sessions every week. These events usually last a few hours but tend to run over the weekend so you don't need to worry about missing class! Also, you can come to as many one-offs as you like, we won't take offence.

 

One-offs are exciting because bigger time slots mean larger projects and the ability to go further afield. We have gone to Mersea Island to do a beach clean up, Dedham to help a therapy farm and Boxted to paint an airfield museum! This is a great way to explore picturesque towns and villages that you wouldn't get to see otherwise. You may even get a pub lunch!

 

We get up to all sorts: Building, painting, stable mucking, event marshalling, pizza making. You don't need any prior knowledge or experience, just good vibes and a willingness to get stuck in.

 

All tranport is provided - normally in the form of our luxurious SU minibus. We guarantee a great day out with friendly people and lots of laughter.

 

Keep an eye on this page because we are constantly updating it!

 

Once signed up, a member of a team will get in touch via your Essex email informing about meeting point or asking to confirm your attendance.

Isolation pen pals

Reach out to elderly residents who are living under complete lockdown. They are currently facing dark and difficult times, but something as simple as a kind, handwritten letter can put a smile on their face and a spring in their step.
