Volunteers needed!

Blue Peter Whizz Kidz Appeal

Volunteers are needed to work at the Blue Peter Whizz Kidz
Go Cardz Appeal fulfilment Centre in Victoria.

Whizz-Kidz have devised an innovative and creative project.
They will ask Blue Peter viewers to design and create handmade
Christmas cards which will then be sold in Tesco
stores throughout the UK on Whizz-Kidz’ behalf. The Cards
will be sold for a minimum donation of £1 for 2 cards. The
money raised by the appeal will fund a revolutionary new
project for Whizz-Kidz. Whizz-Kidz aims to establish a network
of clinics around the UK where a disabled child will
have their assessment and fitting with a therapist and can
take home their chair on the same day.

They are looking for volunteers to help man their Go-
Cardz fulfilment centre from the beginning of September
2010, when they will begin putting together card making materials
for Blue Peter viewers, right through to December
2010, when the handmade cards will be distributed to Tesco
stores nationwide. The fulfilment centre will operate 7 days
a week from 9am - 1pm & 2pm - 6pm.

They estimate they will need over 1500 volunteers to help
man the fulfilment centre. The fulfilment centre will be
based at Whizz Kidz HQ at Elliot House, 10-12 Allington
Street, Victoria, SW1E 5EH.

A volunteer diary planner has been set up with Volunteer
spot, where volunteers can choose and book online the
dates that are most convenient for them. Please follow this
link to sign up to volunteer:-

The dates I have volunteered for are:
2nd October, 6th November & 4th December 2010 (morning shift).
