We are looking for volunteers to join our bank of drivers to help with the following tasks:
What training we can offer you:
This is a hugely rewarding role so we look forward to hearing from you.
We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable volunteers to undertake a variety of tasks to assist us in our fundraising and marketing work – jobs include research, letter writing, data entry, preparing fundraising materials etc. We can find you a job to suit your skills and we guarantee to supply you with a delicious cuppa or three when you arrive :-)
In 2018 we want to take White Lodge Centre to our community by raising more awareness about who we are, where we are and what we do. To achieve this we are looking to build a bank of enthusiastic volunteers who can represent White Lodge Centre at local fairs, fetes and other fundraising events. We will need people to help us set up and run promotional stalls, people to hold a bucket at a collection and also cheer and encourage our brave participants in events like the london Marathon or Ride London Bike ride. We'll supply the promotional T-shirts and materials but we need manpower to help deliver our presence. We don't expect you to commit to all events but attendance of a handful of events would make such a difference. Once you are on the bank of volunteers we'll contact you regularly to let you know what events we need help with. It's fun and you don't need to commit regularly.
Have you got what it takes to talk about our work to a group of people? We are looking for impassioned volunteers to join a small bank of public speakers who can visit visit clubs, organisations and even schools to talk about the work of the White Lodge Centre. You could also help when we are exhbiting promotional stalls at local events as your ability to talk about our work to individuals will be so helpful. Full training will be provided to help you learn our key messages and topical activities. This team will play an important role as look to grow awareness and support in the community.
Did you know that on average one collection can placed in a local shop of business will accumulate £41 in loose change! We are looking for volunteers to help us increase the amount of collection cans that we have in the community - not only do they raise vital money but they also help raise an immeasurable amount of awareness. If you can find time to place 10-20 cans in your community and replace and bring the full cans to White Lodge Centre 2 to 3 times a year then we would love to hear from you.
Have you got a talent for retail management? In White Lodge Centre we have a very popular charity shop which attracts sales and donation on a regular basis. We are looking for someone with experience of running a shop to help us maximise it's profitability for the charity. We are looking for a candidate who can afford at least two half days a week to help manage our donations, stock rotation, pricing and who can recognise valuable donationswhich could be best sold through alternative channels. Is so, we would love to hear from you.
Little Stars is a group for families with children aged 0-5 with additional needs. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help run these sessions. Volunteers would be expected to help set up/clear away, offer refreshments and prepare a simple lunch. Chatting with the families, offering advice and support is also a vital part of the role – sometimes all that is required is a listening ear. We also have access to the onsite hydrotherapy pool and volunteers may also be required to assist with the swimming session.
Based at White Lodge Centre, Chertsey.
Every Tuesday (term time only), 9.30 - 2.30pm.
Training and support provided!
