Fancy Volunteering With Us?

We are a small and friendly team and are always looking for new people to get involved with the bakery. We are currently looking to add to our team of regular, and ad hoc volunteers.

Don’t worry if the thought of assisting with the production of the bread is too much for you, maybe you would like to help as on an ad hoc basis selling our bread at local market events. Perhaps you have an interest in the workshops and would like to help out at these. Then there is all the back room duties, admin, marketing, social media etc.

Whatever you feel comfortable with, get in touch with us to discuss….

Volunteering Opportunity

One of the best and most important elements of LoveBread is our fabulous team of volunteers. From early starts in the bakery, to delivering the freshly bread to our outlets, we have a great team.

We are super busy at the moment, and have some new volunteering opportunities available.

We are looking for people who can volunteer regularly, one or more mornings each week. Starting between 9am and 9.30am you would arrive after the baking is done, but in time to help with the increasing preparation workload for the next bake shift. This typically involves weighing out the bread mixes, assisting with the shaping of the sourdough breads, as well as other general kitchen duties.

If you, or someone you know might be interested in joining in with our community based team, please get in touch for more information. You can contact us via email on baker@lovebread.org.uk or via our Facebook page.
