Volunteering with Thurrock Play Network provides the opportunity to be part of a hard working, fun team where everyday is different! We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with all aspects of our work.
We offer lots of volunteer opportunities including sorting of stock and donations, organising displays, creating craft kits, helping with play and craft events, assisting our members and lots more!
These are examples of volunteer roles you could do at TPN
Meet Our Volunteers
There are lots of things you could get involved in, from working in the store and sorting donated materials to researching supplies, making collections or maybe even demonstrating your crafting skills by running a workshop!
'I enjoy working in the Pyramid Centre and doing repetitive work, it suits me well. I especially like it when Thurrock Play Network does anything around holiday times; Easter, Christmas etc. I really enjoy the creative things we do'
Barbara and Andy
'Andy and I have been volunteering for 2 years. We are delighted to help out the ScrapStore as they offer products for crafting that were destined for landfill. We also help by making fabric bags, aprons and masks from donated fabric to reduce the plastic waste impact on the local area. We also love hearing from returning customers of the ways they have reused the items available to them at The Pyramid'
'The Pyramid is a great place to visit, you can pick up some scrap resources and make all sorts.
Your imagination has no limits.
Paint it, stick it, cut it, glue it, use it but please don't throw it, bin it or abuse it, think of what it could become with The Pyramid!'
'I like socializing and meeting all the customers/members, finding out what they make from our scrap. I enjoy sorting donations and helping with restocking the Pyramid Centre when needed. I like working as a team, it makes for a happy work place and enjoy learning from the excellent staff'
'The thing I like the most is working with the fabric and helping people find what they are looking for. Being at the centre and seeing all the scrap and what other members have created sparks the imagination. The possibilities are endless!'
