Bucket collections tend to take place between 9am and 5pm but you'd only need to give an hour or two and you don't usually need to fill out a full volunteer application form to do this. Call 01485 601701 to find out what dates, times and locations are available. Ambassador/Public Speaker As an Ambassador, you'll attend supporter fundraising and awareness events as a public speaker, representing the Hospice - usually through leads you've generated yourself. Events could be anything from gig nights, to dinner parties or a charity football match. You'll be speaking on a variety of topics including updates on services and the care offered to patients, their families and carers - and publicising our Events Dates. Typically these events are held at weekends, and occasionally in the evenings, across West and North Norfolk.You'll be provided with training to ensure that you have a good knowledge of the Hospice and have all the information and presentation materials you need when collecting any cheques, saying 'thank you' and promoting our local cause. This role will suit you if you: are enthusiastic about our services and cheerful with a positive attitude are reliable and trustworthy are a confident public speaker have your own transport and a good knowledge of the local area are good with people and enjoy interacting with the public If you like the sound of this read Celia's story - she's one of our volunteers. Collection box coordinator Collection boxes bring in thousands of pounds for us every single year. If you like getting out and about, meeting people and building relationships, this is the role for you! We're looking for enthusiastic volunteers to distribute static collection boxes to shops and businesses in your own local area, making sure the boxes are replaced when full and returning full boxes for banking. You'll like this if you're a friendly, outgoing person who's happy to talk to people about the Hospice, but with no need for a hard sell. We particularly need volunteers to cover Fakenham, Dereham, Wells-next-the-sea, Holt and King's Lynn. Whichever fundraising role you choose, you'll get some training so that you have a good overview knowledge of the Hospice - and you'll be given anything else that's needed for the particular role you're doing.
