- We are looking for someone who has first-hand experience of children and a clear idea of what toys, games, books etc are appropriate for each age group
- to come to the office once or twice a month for an hour or so to send reminders to the befrienders / shoppers about the children in their families who have birthdays
- to sort out presents from the store and purchase cards
