We are always on the lookout for willing volunteers who can help us at our Centre in Cuckfield within the fundraising team, or at any of the various events we attend and organise throughout the year.

Volunteers can help on whatever timescale is best for them – from manning our reception desk one day every week, to distributing collection boxes, leaflet dropping or helping out at any of our annual events – the list is endless. We welcome whatever time you can give – every minute you volunteer helps us continue our work and support our families.

  •  RSA in Horsham helped us with painting at our Centre in Cuckfield when we moved in January 2017.
  • Unum have assisted us with bucket collections at Lingfield Park. 
  • Rapid Relief volunteer their time and have provided all the refreshments and food for our annual fundraising walks, as well as helping with bucket collections.
  • HSBC provide volunteers every year to help us at the Charity Christmas card shop at Horsham Museum as well as selling cards in their local branches.
  • Patricia volunteers at our office helping coordinate our collection boxes and also helps us with bucket collections and events.
  • Harriet helps support the service team in sessions with the families and children.
  • Parents of children who attend our Charity help us at local events whether it be collecting money, giving a talk or engage the companies they work for to support our Charity.  

 Volunteering is also a great way for companies to strengthen their corporate social responsibilites.  An alternative team-building day could involve staff helping with minor DIY jobs, attending events of lending their business expertise.

We can never have enough volunteers, so if you have a few hours to spare and would like to do something rewarding to support a local Charity then we would love to hear from you.
