What will my role involve?
As a fundraising and events volunteer there are lots of different activities you can get involved with:
- In house events
- Supermarket collections
- Supermarket bag packs
- Stalls (markets, car boot sales, etc.)
- Collection box distribution
Once you have registered as a volunteer and completed the relevant checks, we will add your details to our fundraising and events volunteer database. When opportunities arise for volunteers, we will contact you either by email or by phone to ask if you would like to take part!

We also offer the opportunity for volunteers to come in on a more regular basis to help the Fundraising and Marketing team. For more information about opportunities like this, contact the Fundraising and Marketing Manager directly.
