Event support we hold a range of fundraising events throughout the year which benefit from volunteer support. Get involved by helping to direct guests, setting up equipment and merchandise, and giving out programmes and leaflets.

Community fundraising support this can involve leaflet distribution, selling raffle tickets and placing and monitoring collection tins.

Bucket collections at events we always need lots of fun and friendly volunteers to help us with bucket collections at various events both on the hospital sites and around London too.

  • reimburse travel expenses on proof of receipt (London zones 1-6),
  • provide refreshments, or cover reasonable lunch expenses,
