Volunteer for our Outdoor Gear Charity Shop

Posted: Tue 18 Jul 2023

Join us as a volunteer and help make a difference outdoors! Help us sort, photograph, and list donations of outdoor gear onto our eBay charity shop, helping to get more folk outdoors and raising funds for Àban's own charitable activities.

Do you have a love for the outdoors and are knowledgeable about outdoor kit? If so, we would love to hear from you.

We launched our outdoor gear charity shop on eBay earlier this year, which has been a great success. The aim of our charity shop is to get as many people outdoors as possible by reducing the sometimes high cost to entry, as well as reducing the environmental impact of kitting yourself up for the outdoors. All of the proceeds from selling gear go straight back into running our own charitable work here in Inverness.

Donations are becoming more and more generous, which is fantastic news for Àban, but is becoming difficult to manage for a small team (see photos below).

What we are Looking for

With donations becoming more frequent and more generous, we are now looking for a volunteer to help us sort, photograph, value, & list items on our eBay shop.

We are looking for somebody to volunteer for two hours per week to assist with the above. We are open weekdays 9 am - 5pm. If you would like to volunteer from home outside of these hours, it may be possible to make these arrangements.

If you have a comprehensive knowledge of outdoor kit, anything from camping equipment, skis, wetsuits, winter clothing, walking boots/shoes, & general outdoor clothing from lower end to high end.
