Donating your time can be just as valuable as donating your money. As a relatively small charity with big ambitions for the families we support, we rely on our brilliant team of volunteers to help us promote events, run our shop and provide admin support in the office. Whatever your background, and however you help, you’ll find that volunteering for the 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 you personally and for the community. It’s a way to gain confidence, learn new skills or putting your existing skills to good use.
Volunteer in our shops
The Noah’s Ark Charity is lucky enough to have two shops, both of which are supported by a friendly team of volunteers. Our community shop in Birchgrove, Cardiff sells good quality pre-loved items while the one in the children’s hospital foyer sells refreshments, pocket money items and gifts. If you’re a ‘people person’ who’s local to the area and you’d like to donate a few regular hours of your time supporting the charity in this way we’d love to hear from you. Drop Laura an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or read more about our shops here.
Volunteer at events
After two years without them, we’re delighted to say that our ‘in person’ events are back and we really need the support of volunteers to help make them a big success. 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. 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 be helping to put the fun into fundraising. For more information about event volunteering email SamB@noahsarkcharity.org
Volunteer in our office
We can always do with a helping hand at Charity HQ, so if you can spare a couple of hours a week we’d love to hear from you. If you’re looking for some office experience or would just like to donate some of your time, please contact us. To explore opportunities for office volunteering email Kath@noahsarkcharity.org
