We’re about to mark our tenth year since we first opened our doors in September 2008, and we’re on the look out for volunteers.

From baking or bucket collecting, to helping in a Bluebell Wood shop or at the hospice, there are many ways anyone can give their ten hours. 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.

Sally Baker, Bluebell Wood’s Community Fundraising Manager 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 looking 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 works for 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.
