There are many ways to donate and it doesn’t always mean putting your hand in your pocket. We rely on our brilliant team of volunteers who help us promote events, volunteer in our shop and provide admin support in our office. Whatever your background, and however you help, you’ll find that volunteering for Noah’s Ark Charity is both rewarding and fun.
Volunteering is any activity or service that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that benefits someone else, the local community or the environment.
There are many benefits to volunteering, both for the volunteer and the community. Volunteering provided a great opportunity for personal development; it’s a way of gaining confidence and learning new skills or putting your existing skills to good use.
Volunteer at our Fundraising Hub
Many of our supporters are grateful family members who want to give something back to the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales for the care their children have received. So that we can provide them with the best support possible, we’ve set up a fundraising hub within the hospital’s reception area. Your role as a hub volunteer could include meeting and greeting our potential supporters, providing them with additional information and any resources they might need and processing one off donations. As many visitors to the hub will be parents and carers of current patients, a warm and friendly disposition is really important.
Volunteer at events
We are always in need of volunteers to help us at events. Our events are a great opportunity to meet new people and raise awareness of the charity’s work. You could be doing anything from selling raffle tickets to registering event participants. If you want to get involved with challenge events but don’t fancy running a marathon, jumping out of a plane or climbing Everest, then volunteering at a cheering post could be for you. Our volunteers are essential to all our events. We couldn’t support our fundraisers without the amazing help of our volunteers ‑ whether that’s through running a cheering post, marshalling a walk or assisting Santa at our Christmas Grotto. Whatever your role, we can guarantee you’ll put the fun into fundraising.
Volunteer in our office
We can always do with a helping hand at Charity HQ, so if you could spare a couple of hours a week we would love to hear from you. The role would require you to do basic admin jobs but don’t hide any natural talent for marketing, social media or secretarial skills. If you’re looking for some office experience or would just like to donate some of your time, please contact us.
