Freecycle is a fantastic email network that has been going for some time in North Staffordshire. The idea is simple: you can give spare stuff away and ask for things in return. They’re currently looking for volunteer to help keep the network running smoothly:
Stoke-on-Trent Freecycle(TM) needs volunteers to be group moderators. Moderators must live here. Training is provided. If you’re interested in making a contribution to your community and your planet; in learning a little about online community building and media relations; and in keeping stuff out of the local landfill, please keep reading!
Being a moderator doesn’t require a lot of time but does require some dedication. There is lots of support available, it’s fun and is a small thing that can make such a big difference.
Simply answer these questions and send to us. You’ll hear back within a week. All information is strictly confidential and will not be shared or otherwise distributed outside of Freecycle management. We ask for some personal information for safety and liability reasons and to be able to contact you in an emergency.
Thanks for your consideration
Please tell us:
1. Your full name, contact information (include a phone number), and address where you live.
