Play Action International needs volunteers

Play Action International’s Ukraine Play Box Appeal aims to give boxes of toys and play materials to as many of the estimated 90,000 Ukrainian children who are expected to arrive in the UK over the coming weeks as possible, as well as to Ukrainian children seeking refuge in Eastern Europe. By offering Ukraine’s children boxes of toys and play materials, together we can begin to give them a sense of their childhood back and heal through play.

The Play Boxes being sent to Play Action International for this appeal all need to be hand-checked before they give them to Ukrainian refugee children. This is where you come in!

Play Action International need volunteers who can come to Yodel’s base in Northampton (Yodel, Unit 4, Mercury Drive, Northampton, NN4 7JE) and help to check through Play Boxes and prepare them for sending.

Please fill out the form below with your availability for volunteering. The shifts available will be Mon – Fri, 11:00am-2:00pm and 2:30pm-5:30pm. You will be contacted THE DAY BEFORE, between 4:00pm – 7:00pm, to see if you are still available to volunteer.

The number of volunteers we need will vary from day to day, so please be flexible where possible. This is due to the unknown response and unknown quantity of boxes Play Action International will receive each day. You will be an essential part of this operation and Play Action International cannot thank you enough for volunteering your time.
