Ten hour birthday present

Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is looking for people in Doncaster to volunteer for ten hours as it celebrates ten years since it opened its doors.

With 19 September marking ten years since the ribbon was cut at the new hospice in 2008, people are asked to give ten hours of their time in support of children and young adults across the region with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions.

From baking to bucket collecting, to helping in a Bluebell Wood shop or at the hospice, there are many ways volunteers can do their bit. People can help out as best suits them, whether they are available a couple of hours each week, only in school hours or want to help at one event. 

Upcoming events include the Doncaster 10K, at the Racecourse, on 25 November 2018, when Bluebell Wood is looking for volunteers in and around Doncaster to help with bucket collections and the bag drop, both on the Saturday and Sunday.

Sally Baker, Bluebell Wood’s Community Fundraising Manager for the Doncaster area, said: “Volunteering with Bluebell Wood is a great way to help local families, get valuable experience, make friends and be part of your local community. We’re always on the lookout for fundraising volunteers to help our events run smoothly and to cheer on our supporters towards their fundraising targets. 

“From organising packs and posting orders to event marshalling and bucket collecting, people can do whatever most suits them. We’re very proud of all our amazing volunteers and we will always welcome new ones with open arms.”

In 2012 Bluebell Wood was presented with The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK. The charity also has the Rotherham Volunteer Kitemark Plus accreditation, which helps volunteers know they will receive a high quality, positive volunteering experience.  

If you would like to volunteer please contact Terry Lowell, Volunteer Coordinator, at terry.lowell@bluebellwood.org or by phoning 01909 508116.
