Are you able to give a few hours of your time to help raise funds and support a local charity? As a Guild Care volunteer, you can support us when it is convenient for you and do as little or as much as you like. There are a range of opportunities available to help us raise vital funds and engage with the local community. Being a fundraising volunteer can look pretty much however you want it to look. A few ideas of how you could volunteer with our fundraising team are listed below, but if you have another idea we’d love to hear from you! We welcome all ages and very much look forward to hearing from you so come and join the Guild Care family.

Why should I join Guild Care as a fundraising volunteer?

Volunteering offers you the chance to give something back to the community and make a difference to the people around you. It also provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. You will make new friends and learn new skills and we will support, help, and guide you all the way.

Here are a few different ways you could get involved...

  • You could be helping us at event registration, giving out t-shirts, selling raffle tickets at a stall or doing a bucket collection at a supermarket; there are so many different events and ways you can support with even just two hours of your time.
  • No previous experience is necessary, we will guide and support you!
  • And there is no set time or date to commit to.
  • We’re looking for volunteers who are happy to help out at events on an ad hoc basis.
