Fareshare, the community food network and shortlisted (with Cargill) for this year’s Best Partnership in the Community award, is also one of the charity’s supporting a novel new matchmaking service.
Good Deed Dating gets like-minded singles involved in volunteering projects. It takes the pressure and awkwardness out of dating by shifting the spotlight off individuals, and encouraging groups of people to work together for a common goal. If romance blossoms, they’ll have a great story to tell. If not, they’ll still know that they made a real difference, by doing something amazing for their community.
Though less than a year old, Good Deed Dating has been making waves on the volunteering scene by offering charities a new, innovative and easy way to get more volunteers involved with their projects.
If your programme could benefit from more volunteers – whether you’re looking to trial something new or perhaps you’d like a group along to support something already established – Good Deed Dating could be the answer.
It’s free to partner, and as part of its status as a social enterprise, Good Deed Dating donates 25% of its profits back to the charities it works with.
Following the wealth of media attention from the likes of Time Out, The Guardian, Daily Mail and Evening Standard, its membership has grown rapidly and it is looking to expand its events to meet demand.
