Fundraising volunteer

Fundraising throughout the county is supported in many different ways by volunteers. Our very varied fundraising events require the help of volunteers working alongside our fundraising team.

This includes events such as our annual Summer Fete or Christmas Fairs – helping with the sale of items, running a tombola or raffle, and serving refreshments. Help is also required with mail shots and administration tasks.

John Lockyer volunteers a great deal of his time, and has told us why here.

Our Friends Groups, and many other supporters, organise their own events and may require additional help from volunteers, so there is always a very varied list of tasks which people can assist us with.

We are also looking for volunteers to help with Street Collections and Leaflet Distribution in north, central and south Dorset. We will provide you with all the material you need and explain what’s required.

If you are interested in helping please contact our Fundraising Office on 01305 261800 or email
