Fundraising Volunteer

Are you looking for a Fundraising role that makes a real difference to a local charity? Could you support acorns and volunteer in the GL51-GL56 postcode area?

At Acorns we provide care and support for life limited or life threatened children and their families. We are a charity, and our fundraising is vital to enable us to continue providing care and support to the children: it costs around £10 million a year to run our care services.

Being a Fundraising Volunteer is an exciting and varied role that helps us to raise money for the children and family we care for.  There are opportunities to help at events - from marathons to our Fire and Ice walk, to Christmas markets. You could help with a tombola or raffle, set up and pack away, or simply cheer on participants.  You could also stand in a location with a charity collection bucket, collecting change as people pass by or approach businesses to place a charity tin. Whether you choose to volunteer as an individual or bring your friends, family, or colleagues, all are welcome to #TeamAcorns!

How much time will it take? 

Our fundraising happens throughout the year, so it’s up to you whether you join us for an hour at the beginning of an event, to a whole morning, afternoon, or evening.  We have fundraising opportunities both on weekends and on weekdays.
