Attention all Uniting Church Young Adult and Youth Groups
Letter from  Amelia Brown,  Red Dove Cafe Committee Secretary
Uniting Church youth and young adults are warmly invited to volunteer at the Red Dove Cafe at the Royal Adelaide Show 2016 (Friday 2nd – Sunday 11th September). Last year the cafe gave away $45,000 to support UC disability, multicultural, mental health, prison, Frontier Services and UAICC ministries, as well as congregation-based mission projects in SA.
Youth and young adults are an important part of what we do, and volunteering in the cafe is good fun!  Every pair of hands makes a difference.  Volunteers receive a free entry ticket into the Show for each shift, and we get paid in smiles?
All enquiries to Volunteer Coordinator Lesley Williams (8261 3843 / 0402 006 629
All volunteers require a current UCA police check.
