Trust celebrates Volunteers' Week

Volunteers’ Week runs from 1st to 10th June, giving the Trust a perfect opportunity to say a big thank you to all the wonderful people who freely give their time to support us.

Without our team of volunteers we would not be able to fulfil our mission of walking alongside families of seriously-ill children, from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.

Volunteers can, and do, get involved in every aspect of the Trust’s work. This ranges from helping in our bookshop, driving families to medical appointments, helping us prepare for family events such as our Christmas in July party, helping out at a bucket collection or offering an extra pair of hands at one of our fundraising events.

We will shortly be looking to recruit volunteer ‘befrienders’ to work alongside our family outreach team who can spare time to be a friendly face for our supported families. As a befriender, the support you might offer could range from a chat over a cup of tea or helping out with shopping to accompanying families to Trust events.

Could you spare some time to support the Trust? Whether it be a couple of times a year or once a month, through to a few hours each week, it all makes a big difference to the work we do supporting families of seriously-ill children.
