** If you’re not available during your team’s allocated time, or want to stay longer/shorter, come down when you can. **

Note: We’re able to facilitate a maximum of 30 helpers at any time.

If you’re not a TFC member and keen to help, email Becky at or message us through social media channels to help us coordinate the best time for you to assist.
