Without our volunteer network we would be unable to offer the services we do or perform the fundraising activities that are so vital to brain tumour sufferers. Volunteers are our eyes and ears in and around our local communities and perform a vital role in spreading awareness and raising money.
We have many different jobs available for our volunteers from administration and phone assistance to event organisation, street collections and awareness campaigning.
The best thing about volunteering for The Joseph Foote Trust is that we welcome suggestions for new initiatives and volunteering schemes so that together we can capture imaginations and help raise vital funds for brain tumour sufferers.
We understand that everyone has unqiue reasons for wanting to volunteer. We want to recognise your needs so that we can create the best environment for you to be productive and can ensure that working together brings mutual benefit. So whether it is making friends, building your CV, filling spare time or motivated by a personal experience of brain tumours we can create a role to suit you.
Our volunteer Anna speaks passionately about her experience with the charity:
'When I first heard the shocking statistics associated with brain tumours I decided I wanted to fundraise for The Joseph Foote Trust to help the charity pay for patient support, awareness and research to find a cure for this terrible disease.
I started fundraising for The Joseph Foote Trust by hosting charity coffee mornings at my house. Organising these events was very easy; I would send a text to all my friends and bake a few cakes. On the morning I would ensure I had a collection bucket and some charity information and ask for small donations towards the charity. As all the cooking is done in advance, I find that these events are ideal for a good natter and catch up with friends.
My experience of the coffee mornings has spurred me on to become more involved with the charity. I now help with bag packing and general administration in the office. I have found that by offering my time I can make a notable contribution to the charity and in my own way I can help those in need. I simply love it!'
