A community fridge makes use of surplus food from supermarkets to make sure it reaches people who can use it rather than have it go to landfill. In partnership with Mid Surrey Community Fridges we operate a community fridge from ZERO in the centre of Guildford. The fridge is open on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday mornings and relies on volunteers to keep it running, so please get in touch today if you can help with this incredibly worthwhile project.
There are two ways you can help:
- Ensuring the fridge is kept clean, tidy and that all food is handled correctly.
- Helping to serve customers and talk to them about environmental issues
- Clearing left over food at the end of a session
Or, as a collector picking the food up from local supermarkets and delivering it to ZERO. This role requires you to have your own car and will involve some heavy lifting

Established in 1994, Dance Woking is an innovative dance organisation that provides high quality opportunities to watch, perform and take part in dance, providing new experiences that inspire artists, audiences, participants and communities.
WHO ARE WE FOR?
Our work is primarily for Woking and the surrounding Surrey towns and villages.
We serve and support networks across the age spectrum from schoolchildren, to students and recent graduates, to young people outside training and education, and the perennials.
Dance lovers across the county and into London rave about our regular live public performances.
And our pop-up and festival appearances in shopping centres and local parks bring our public spaces to life.
WHY DANCE WOKING?
Our work brings unexpected and lasting benefits through dance to real communities at grass roots level where it has lasting impact.
We are a thriving and nimble business firmly rooted in Woking and Surrey, soon entering our fourth decade of inspiring dance.
We’re alert to local collaborations and equipped to offer more, especially with our funding partners at the Borough Council.
We work with other regional agents in housing and health, in sport and in schools; and we have successful alliances with independent dance artists and choreographers, and with specialist dance schools and mainstream education providers.
