As we collectively move through Covid, there will be hot lunch, coffee and tea provided by the ship. The stove will be on and we will supply ingredients, but we are looking for volunteers to cook a meal for around 30 people. Is this your time to shine?

For example, are you planning to be volunteering all day (the full 7 hours) or for a half a day (3-4 hours)?
