Fareshare South Wales would love some teams to get involved at the heart of their food re-distribution, giving you the opportunity to help them improve the daily lives of people facing food poverty. Their daily operations rely entirely on volunteers and you will be working alongside staff and other volunteers on one or more of the following activities…Picking food orders, working with staff and fellow volunteers to make up orders for each of the organisations receiving food on that day. Labelling orders and helping to load the vans. Sorting food and organising the depot. Sorting fresh fruit and veg. This can be done by more than one team.

Cardiff and Vale Health Charity 

What's the challenge?

Cardiff and Vale Health Charity is the official charity supporting all the work of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. 

Their aim is to improve patient care, over and above what the NHS normally provides. One of their projects is to help improve the health and wellbeing of the patients at Llandough Hospital by creating an Orchard for the use of patients, their families and staff.   

 

Website

The charity is in the early stages of creating an Orchard at Llandough Hospital. No NHS money will be spent on creating this 7 acre space, it will purely be created with charitable money and donations. They are in the early stages at the moment and there is a lot of clearing which needs to be done. A few apple trees have been planted and their bug hotel is already in place but their aim this year is to do all the necessary clearing e.g. brambles, dead wood etc, start building the paths and planting some specific plants in order for the local bees to make a ‘super honey’ which will be used for medicinal purposes and for research.

 

 
This can be picked up by more than one team
