We are always looking for volunteers to help us at our fundraising events across East and West Sussex throughout the year. If you think you can spare a couple of hours, please complete our enquiry form here, or to find out more about volunteering see our FAQs.


Occasional Fundraising Volunteer

Are you friendly, fun and interested in spending a few hours of your time to make a huge difference?

You could be cheering on some amazing runners at the Brighton Half Marathon, selling raffle tickets at a village fair or bucket collecting at a supermarket; there are so many different events you can support starting with just two hours of your time.

In addition to our two main volunteering roles, we also have lots of ad hoc opportunities throughout the year. We are always adding more opportunities, so please check back soon if none of these events are suitable for you.

If you are interested in volunteering for more than one event, you do not have to complete a separate form for each one, just list them all on one and your availability for each event.
