Fundraising Volunteers

Throughout the year, Tōtara Hospice hosts various events and runs appeals to raise vital funds. These events and appeals would not be successful without the help of our wonderful volunteers. At events, volunteers can opt to help with various aspects of the day, including preparation and set up, manning stalls and running raffles or challenges. Volunteers are also crucial for appeals, such as the Trees of Remembrance appeal in December, as they are rostered on to man the stalls and collect money at local supermarkets and malls.

Our fundraising volunteers are invaluable as they represent Hospice out in the public and are a friendly face for people to associate Hospice with. 

Fundraising volunteering is a great way to:

  • Get fundraising experience and build your CV
  • Meet lots of interesting people
  • Develop skills such as communication, customer service, event organisation
  • Experience a wide range of exciting events and appeals
