Make a difference by volunteering in a fundraising role

If you’d like to make a difference in your local community, you’ve come to the right place. At Rennie Grove, we have a wide range of local fundraising volunteer roles for you to choose from. And, however you choose to help, your contribution will make a big difference to local families facing life-limiting illness.

Maybe you have specific skills you’d like to put to good use as a fundraising volunteer.  Or perhaps you’d like to learn or practise new skills, such as public speaking and networking to spread the word about what we do.

Whatever you’d like to do – we’ll probably have something that will suit. Read on to find out about typical fundraising volunteer opportunities .

Rennie Grove collection tins in our community generate over £25,000 every year. Volunteers who collect and replace our tins help us maintain this significant stream of funding which is vital to helping us support our patients and their families.

Our Ambassadors are volunteers who enjoy speaking and presenting. They are happy to attend meetings or present speeches to groups of any size in the local community. For example, at WI, Lions, Rotary Club, Round Table or U3A meetings. Or to employees, schoolchildren, or simply over a cuppa with a group of friends. Use your networking skills and contacts too – and get out into your local community meeting people and going places.

If your time is limited, use what you do have to make a difference, while having a great time. Our events in your local community are great fun and very sociable. Participants are so grateful to our event volunteers, and you help make the event happen.

"Volunteering at Rennie Grove’s fundraising events is another great way to show your support. It’s not a huge commitment and you help the charity save money on hiring extra staff. I helped marshal during the Chilterns 3 Peaks, it was a wonderful day out, I had the opportunity to meet supporters, the views were fantastic, and the weather was lovely."
