Volunteers needed 🙂

The Hugs Foundation has been offered the opportunity to collect donations in different supermarket chains in Bodmin.

🗓️ Volunteers needed for bag packing (weekends too)

🗓️ All proceeds go towards the animals!

🗓️ Volunteers needed for foyer collection (between the exit doors in most shops)

We are a small team of staff and with the daily routine of working the horses, field checks and mucking out it can be really difficult to get enough ‘hands on deck’ to go collecting. We are asking if there are any volunteers that can bring a smile and cheery dispersion to help raise crutial funds for us.
