Sausage Sizzle Volunteers

Sausage Sizzles are held regularly outside of Mitre 10 Bishopdale on Harewood Road from 9:00am - 3:00pm to raise funds.


Bread Collection and Delivery

We’re looking for volunteers to pick up bread from Northlands Mall on a Sunday evening (7pm) and then deliver it to a local school and BCT on a Monday morning.
Pick up and delivery requires two to work together so retired couples or flatmates would be ideal. The time commitment is approximately two hours, once every six weeks.

Calling all soup makers

Would you be prepared to make a pot of soup once a term?  If so, could you bring it along to the trust, so that we can freeze it for our winter community lunches?  We are able to assist with finances for this.  Please contact Nicky, House Coordinator on 359 1741 or email

Volunteer winter and Christmas lunches

The Bishopdale Community Trust has two lunches each year to honour and thank our volunteers for the excellent work that they do. There is a great atmosphere, friendship, chatter, delicious food and scumptous deserts!

Bishopdale Community Trust compiles and maintains the Bishopdale Directory.


The directory aims to provide comprehensive information on local activities, groups and clubs, events, services, churches, schools, shops and businesses.

Check the directory out. You'll be amazed about how much goes on in our community!
