Job description and specification: Marmalade Trust is a small but highly ambitious charity that supports people who are experiencing loneliness to feel more connected. Since 2013 we have been providing Christmas Day events to those who would be alone in Bristol, South Glos. and North Somerset. In 2019 we held 10 volunteer-led events in pubs and local restaurants. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we ran our project in a different way last year, by providing socially distanced home visits on Christmas Day to deliver hampers and meals.
Christmas Cheer 2021 project we are planning on the rule of 6 with the aim of running 40 mini-events (6 people attending each one) across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. We know that after the last challenging 18 months it will be even more important to provide companionship on Christmas Day.
As the Project Coordinator, you will be the day-to-day lead on ensuring the successful roll-out of our Christmas Cheer 2021 Project.
