Make a difference by volunteering with us 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 Peace, 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.
Choose from any of our one-off, recurring, or ongoing volunteer roles with fundraising
Our fundraising volunteer roles have varying time commitments to suit people in different circumstances. For example, you could volunteer as an event marshal at one of our annual challenge events. Or you might like to help us spread the word locally about Rennie Grove Peace Hospice Care and our services by distributing leaflets or putting up posters in the community. We always need volunteers to help us raise much-needed funds in different ways, all across the communities where we provide care. If you have time to give and would like to join the Rennie Grove Peace fundraising volunteer team, we’d love to hear from you!Volunteer today!
Whether you have specific experience you’d like to put to good use, or fancy learning some new skills, we’d love to hear from you.
Below are some examples of the kind of roles our volunteers do across the hospice, please scroll down for our current list of opportunities.
In the past, our Rennie Grove and Peace Hospice collection tins across our community have generated over £25,000 every year. Now we need even more volunteers to collect and replace our tins as Rennie Grove Peace Hospice Care. Could you help us maintain this significant stream of funding, vital to helping us support our patients and their families?
Our Fundraising Ambassadors are volunteers who enjoy speaking and presenting. They help us reach new people, inspire new fundraising activity and thank our supporters for the work they are doing. They give speeches about the work of Rennie Grove Peace to a variety of community groups and at charity events and help us to identify future fundraising opportunities.
If your time is limited, why not use what you do have to make a difference, while having a great time? We run hundreds of events each year across the local community, and they are always great fun and very sociable. Participants are so grateful to our event volunteers, as your help really does help make the event happen each year.
What you get from volunteering in our fundraising volunteer roles
Not only are our volunteers helping us make a huge difference in the local community, but many of them talk about how sociable volunteering can be, and how much they enjoy our various events and activities. Here are just a few reasons given for joining the team:
Helping the community It’s rewarding to know you really are making a difference, right on your doorstep. By volunteering with the Rennie Grove Peace Hospice Care fundraising team, you can help families in your local community receive specialist care, when they need it the most.
Making connections Enjoy working in a friendly team in a very sociable, supportive environment.
Rewarding results There’s huge satisfaction in completing a task and knowing that you’ve contributed to the overall fundraising team’s objectives of raising funds to support local patients, their families, carers and those around them.
Having fun While we work hard to really make a difference, we always enjoy delivering our activities and events alongside friendly, like-minded people with a shared aim.
"Volunteering at Rennie Grove Peace’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."
