In years to come, the covid-19 pandemic will be looked upon as a time of crisis, but also as a time where community spirit came to the forefront. From clapping for the NHS to making meals for the homeless – so many have come forward at this challenging time to do what they can to help and show their appreciation.
We wanted to get involved and let you know about the launch of our brand new volunteer scheme, ‘lend a hand with limber’, designed to connect the people on limber that are keen to help, with businesses that need it.
Things continue to be challenging for everyone alike, and as always, we’ve been thinking about what we can do to support both our workers and hirers during this difficult time. While trying to organise paid opportunities for workers has always been and continues to be the top priority, for those who have been furloughed, we’ve launched a brand new volunteer scheme to support the businesses in the limber community who might be in need of a helping hand – this could involve anything from painting a venue, deep cleaning a kitchen or doing some design work.
limber is full of hard-working, talented individuals who have currently found themselves with a little less going on than usual and when we reached out to present this idea, many were quick to offer their time and energy to give a something back.
While this scheme is by no means obligatory, volunteering is thought to be a great way to boost mental and physical wellbeing, as well as helping to combat stress and anxiety, and for those who are looking for something to keep themselves busy during the lockdown, we hope this will go a little way to helping. It’s more important than ever to look out for each other, and there are lots of causes that could benefit from some support.
If you’re a hirer and have a task you’d like help with, let us know by getting in touch with dates, times and details, and we’ll send the request out to our fast-growing group of volunteers. If someone is available to help, we’ll send them your way. Please do not ask for volunteer help with anything that directly generates revenue, however, like delivery driving or cheffing – remember you can still post that work on limber.
If you’re a worker and you’d like to volunteer, drop us an email and we’ll add your name to the list. If anyone needs a hand, we’ll send round the request and if you’re able to help, great. If not, don’t worry. It’s as simple as that.
