Thank you so much for volunteering to help the Vine Church with #loveDunfermline. Below are some instructions and guidelines for volunteering that we would ask you to read carefully and sign to agree with them.
On the day you are volunteering please arrive at The Vine Church, 131 Garvock Hill, Dunfermline at 11:15a.m. Please park your car at the side of the building and walk round to the front of the building. Please have your own facemask on (as detailed below) and please ensure you keep 2m social distancing from all other volunteers at all times as you wait. You will receive a short briefing on the instructions for the day, you will be assigned a delivery route and then you will head off to deliver the free meals.
As a volunteer you have an obligation to protect confidential or personal information in relation to other volunteers and other organisations/events. If you have access to confidential information (including addresses or telephone numbers of colleagues/clients/other volunteers), you should never discuss or disclose such information to unauthorised personnel both during and after your involvement with the organisation.
All requests from members of the media for comments/information should be politely directed to the team leader, Aaron Dowds. This is to ensure the accuracy of all information given to the media and to help maintain good relationships. Similarly, you should exercise discretion when commenting in your private capacity about the project where your comment may be understood to be an official comment on behalf of the organisation.

When applying or removing the covering, it is important that you wash your hands first and avoid touching your face. After each use, you must wash the face covering at 60 degrees centigrade or dispose of safely. Face coverings should not be used for children under the age of two years.”
