As a charity we rely on the support of volunteers from across Wales. Our volunteers or ‘Friends’ play a vital role in our fundraising efforts, their hard work and commitment allows us to keep our costs to a minimum, develop our fundraising and ultimately ensures that we are able to continue to support the Children’s Hospital for Wales.
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, as well as to have fun in your spare time. Whether you simply have one day to give or a few days a week we’re grateful for the time you are able to give. We have opportunities for you to volunteer at our office at our shop, at events and even at home or in your local community so whatever your interests or skills we can find the right volunteering opportunity for you.
We’re also looking for volunteers who are interested in setting up local fundraising groups. If you think this is something you may be interesting in finding out more about, please let us know.
Here are just some of the ways our Friends can help us:
Our base in Cardiff means that we have lots of volunteering opportunities available at our office. We’re always in need of help with administration, event and campaign organisation, marketing as well as numerous other tasks associated with fundraising and office work.
Marketing and promotion
We rely on our Friends to help spread the word about the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity and to promote our campaigns and events in their local area. This can be as simple as handing out leaflets, putting up posters in local shops or notifying local papers and websites of up and coming events.
Fundraising events are extremely important for raising awareness in local communities and of course raising money. If you think you could organise a children’s clothes and toy sales or a coffee morning in your local area to raise funds and awareness, please get in touch and we can provide you with support and advice.
We have events throughout the year in different locations in Wales and often need lots of extra help to make sure everything runs smoothly; without our Friends support many of our events could not take place. If you have a few hours to spare
Our Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity Christmas cards are a great way to raise money, every year we look for Friends who can help us sell them. Or maybe you could also help sell tickets to events or take stall to your local fair or fete?
If you think you may be able to help, be it a regular slot every week or being free occasionally to help at events please download our volunteer registration form. Once you have returned you completed application form you will be contacted to discuss which volunteering opportunities are currently available.
