Are you a confident and enthusiastic cyclist? Do you know Strathaven and the surrounding villages like the back of your hand?
If so, come and have a go on our amazing electric cargo bikes (called eCargo for short). Our eCargo Bike Delivery Service is about to develop quickly over the coming months.
If you would like to get involved as a volunteer we will provide training, lend you safety equipment and clothing and provide you with opportunities to learn bicycle maintenance skills.
Your role will involve collecting goods from businesses and delivering them to their customers using our eCargo bikes. On delivery your polite manner will reflect well on Climate Action Strathaven and you will (where possible) take the opportunity to promote the fact that the eCargo bike is a low carbon delivery method helping to reduce congestion in our busy town/villages whilst saving harmful carbon emissions.

When do we need your help?
If you are available for some of the following times/days we would love to hear from you:
Monday to Friday 10am to 2pm and 2pm to 6pm
Saturday 9am to 1pm
You don’t need to be available every week but a regular pattern will help us manage a rota and maintain cover.
We welcome volunteers of all ages over 14 for this role.
Remember volunteering demonstrates initiative and is great for your CV. It is an important part of Duke of Edinburgh and other awards too
If you like the sound of this volunteering role please get in touch with us and we can organise an informal chat to help you get to know us and vise versa.
