Volunteer

Our volunteers support our operations across a variety of activities, from providing training in the bakery and kitchen, to helping in our Coffee Shop and assisting with maintenance around the premises, to making deliveries and helping to fundraise.

Each and every volunteer is a vital member of our team, no matter how much time they are able to give, we are very grateful for their commitment. We will find a role suitable for each volunteer that develops their skills and interests, whilst allowing them to give back to the community.

If you would like to find out more or become a volunteer, please contact us.

Fly Cup Trainees

Sponsor a Trainee Place

In order to meet demand, we would like to increase the number of trainee places we are able to offer. The ‘Sponsor a Trainee Place’ scheme enables individuals or organisations to sponsor a training place for a year, ensuring that we do not need to turn potential trainees away due to lack of funding. To find out how you can help please contact us.

Provide Work Placements

We source work placements and employment opportunities for our trainees in order to support their learning.

Trainees are carefully assessed on ability and matched to local businesses and potential placements within the community.

These placements can take the following forms:

  • Work Experience Opportunities
  • Work Placements
  • Voluntary Placements
  • Paid Employment

Our aim is to equip our trainees with transferable skills that can be of value to employers.

Our trainees are fully supported by a member of Fly Cup staff at the commencement of their placement with an employer until they are confident to work unsupported.

If you are able to offer a placement or would like to find out more, please contact us.

What do you need to do?

Register for free with Easyfundraising and enter Fly Cup Catering as the cause you wish to support. To raise money, instead of going directly to the retailer website, log in to easyfundraising first and click on the retailer you want to shop with. You’ll then be taken to the retailer’s website where you shop as normal, but because you visited easyfundraising first, Fly Cup Catering will get a donation. It really is that simple.
