Volunteer to help beat Covid 19 in Alton

Community First are working in partnership with the local authority to help stop the spread of Covid-19. 

To do this we are excited to be recruiting volunteers for a variety of roles at Alton’s brand new testing site located in the Sports Centre.

As a volunteer you will be helping ensure that essential workers can continue to safely carry out their roles by facilitating their access to regular testing.

Volunteers will be undertaking marshalling and administrative roles to help make sure people coming for covid testing feel welcomed, comfortable and safe. 

With the vital help of volunteers the new test center will operate 6 days a week with volunteers working alongside testing staff in shifts of up to 4 hours. There will be 2 shifts a day so you can choose from morning or afternoon, whichever suits you?
