Purple Pot ambassadors needed. The role involves managing the area/high streets; keeping a check on the existing pots and replacing them when required. Our team will provide you with a detailed area sheet and admin and office support.

Volunteer Inductions

Come along to one of our inductions to find out more about what we do at Haven House Children's Hospice and what is expected of you as a volunteer. The session will include a tour of the hospice. Inductions are open to all active volunteers and anyone who is interested in volunteering with us in the future.

We are looking for volunteers to help with all of the events below. If you can help with anything please get in touch.

Sparkle walk
Friday 17 May, 5pm - 8pm
Our annual sparkle walk is back lighting up the local streets. We will need volunteers to help with registration and marshalling the route.

Town Shows
We often get asked to attend local fetes and fairs over the spring and summer months and need volunteer support by attending some of these and representing Haven House. We usually have a game or activity to engage with members of the public. We need two volunteers to help, and we just ask that one person of the pair has transport to help take over items for the stand. We will fully support in planning games, providing prizes and marketing material for the day. We already have some dates for a few fairs, and we have included these below. If anyone can help, please do get in touch.
