Event Volunteering Opportunities
Helping out at our events is an easy way to volunteer and support our work. You’ll be a part of a great team working together to raise valuable funds and awareness – and you’ll have lots of fun along the way!
Vintage Fair and Fun Dog Show – Sunday 30th September – 9.30 – 3.30pm
Join us for our Vintage Fair and Dog Show, taking place in the hospice grounds. There’ll be plenty to get involved with on the day, including setting the event up and/or packing away, greeting visitors, serving refreshments and assisting with dog show registrations (where you’ll get to meet all of the lovely pooches taking part!)
Decathlon Half Marathon – Saturday 6th October – 11.30 am – approx 2.30pm
We’re looking for volunteers to make up the remaining 5 miles of a half marathon, alongside staff members of Decathlon, on a running machine at the front of the shop. If you’re a keen runner this can be completed by 1 volunteer doing the 5 miles, or it can be split between 2-3 volunteers. Then, when you’re not on the running machine, you’ll be able to cheer the other runners on and hold a bucket for customers to make donations.
