Volunteer to help raise funds for our Helipad Appeal

22 June 2016

Volunteering for our family of hospitals is a fun and rewarding way to help us make a difference. Your time and talent is valuable in helping to support our fundraising work.

We're on the lookout for helpful and reliable volunteers to assist with a wide range of volunteer opportunities in the upcoming months. All funds raised will go towards our Time Saves Lives Appeal to build a primary helipad landing site at our central hospital site.

Whether it is store collections, helping out at our events, or assisting in our charity office, there are many ways that you can get involved. Take a look at the list below to see which volunteer opportunity best suits you...
