There are a variety of roles, so you can do as much or as little as suits you.

Whether you would like to help out once a year with a bucket collection or get involved in organising a fundraising event, we would love to hear from you.

Volunteer Opportunities available.

Join Our Fundraising Group

Our small team of dedicated volunteers run a number of regular local fundraising events throughout the year, such as our charity quiz and Christmas church concert. You would be involved in organising or attending these events, as well as generating new fundraising ideas. You would also, where possible, meet every 3 months to plan and organise these events.

Even if you can only help at the occasional event, do get in touch.

Bucket Collections and Other Fundraising Events

We run bucket collections throughout the year at venues such as supermarkets, local football grounds and shopping centres. With your help we can do more!

We also have a variety of fundraising activities we need support with including:

  • preparing/running stalls and events
  • cheering on marathon runners
  • helping at quiz nights

Fundraising Designers/Copywriters

We are looking for experienced fundraising copywriters and designers throughout the year to help us develop fundraising materials and supporter appeals.

Whether you can help on an ad hoc project such as a social media ad for an event or help us produce our first Christmas appeal, please get in touch, we need your skills!
