Each year it costs around £4 Million to run the Hospice. We only receive around 24% of this from Government funding. Therefore, we need to raise about £3 Million from our fundraising activities to bridge the gap. This includes such things as holding our own fundraising events, bucket collects and bag packs.

We always need volunteers to help out at our events and our bag packs.

You do not need to make a regular time commitment to help out with these, you can just choose events that fit in with your schedule.

We will update our event volunteer requirements regularly so do please keep checking back with us.

What does a Events & Fundraising volunteer do?

You can attend and support our many fundraising events. You might be a marshall or you might work on our registration desk at one of our mass participation events. You could be one of the volunteers who cheers someone over the finishing line at an event or handing out a well earned medal or making that all important cup of tea for a weary Midnight Walk participant. You could be Santa’s elf at our Christmas Grotto – or the main man himself. Or you could be shaking a bucket or collection tin at the local supermarket collection. Take a look at our event calendar to see what suits you best.

What skills do I need?

You don’t necessarily need lot of skills, but you will need to enjoy meeting new people, have good communication skills and enjoy having fun!!

How much time do I need to give?

You don’t need to commit to a regular time each week. You can select an event to suit your availability.

Where will I be based?

We hold events at verious locations across our catchment area. The location for each event will be on our event page. 

We currently have the following vacancies in our Events & Fundraising volunteer team.
