Have you ever considered volunteering for us? We need kitchen staff in our current location on Skinner Street and would also love off-site support on various aspects of publicity and fundraising, such as the website, social media, design and grant applications. We will also need many more volunteers for different types of on-site support when we open Genesis Centre. If you would like to leave your contact details with us now, with an idea of how you could help, then we can contact you later in the year when we start to plan our opening and the activities we will offer. Please email our office on: office@routestoroots.org

We would like to hear from anyone interested in volunteering for this position with Routes to Roots. This need not be a Trustee position, but The Hon Treasurer is responsible for providing financial updates and guidance to the Board of Trustees, which meets four to six times a year in the evening on dates to suit Trustees, and for preparing end of year accounts.

Please contact for further information: Pat Southgate at patsouthgate@btinternet.com or at Routes to Roots’ office on 07901 387643 / 01202 667880.

This Christmas we say a fond farewell to Eddie and Sue who will be cooking Christmas Day lunch for the final time this year and ‘retiring’ from team leading and volunteering after many years of service. Thank you for all their support and kindness to our clients over the years. At this season of goodwill we also say thank you to Waitrose who donated a turkey for Christmas Day lunch, Waitrose customers who rewarded our carol singing efforts with over £150, Asda customers who filled a shopping cart with food, Poole Contact Centre for shoeboxes, and Skinner Street URC congregation and neighbours for parcels and presents for the guys.
