In addition to donations and sponsorship, volunteering is another incredibly important area that relies on the dedicated help and support of our many people.
We are very fortunate to have a great team in place and we are always looking for extra help and ideas. There are ways in which you could volunteer your time and experience; for example:
Retail: Charity shop assistants - help staff the shop, help with stock control, displays, customer care and selling at our Popley Spotlight centre in Basingstoke.
Boot Sale: Assistance is required. Can you work some of the weekend and a little in the week? Could you set up and man a stall at various locations in the Basingstoke area?
Reception/Admin: Various positions are always available.
Event Team: Join the team and help plan and execute an event. Any previous experience in fundraising would be greatly appreciated.
Cafe: We serve tea and coffee. Could you help?
Leaflet Drop: We are always looking for people who would be willing to deliver leaflets door to door in the local area.
All in all, becoming a volunteer can be a very rewarding way of filling your time, helping you feel like you are contributing. It can help with social isolation and even help to build your own confidence. We are incredibly thankful to all of our existing team and all those that will choose to come on-board in the very near future.
