Volunteers are an essential and much valued part of our organisation.
In Volunteering for The Bracken Trust you will meet new friends, learn new skills, use existing skills, and be part of the team.
Here are some of the ways you can volunteer for The Bracken Trust.
Centre Volunteers are the first point of contact when people arrive at The Bracken Trust They play a very important part in welcoming visitors, helping them feel at ease and offering refreshments.
Help at one of our fundraising events, e.g. Bike or Run for Bracken; Summer/ Winter Fayre. We are always looking for volunteers to help as marshals, helping to hand out tea, putting up tables, or a myriad of other things.
Gardening The Bracken Trust is very fortunate to be set in over an acre of grounds. Another vital role for volunteers is helping to maintain it as a beautiful and peaceful haven for our patients and guests.
Bracken Trust Social Committee the Social Committee are always pleased to receive offers of help at coffee mornings, making cakes for fundraising events such as concerts, tin collections, selling raffle tickets, quiz nights, or even organising events.
Cooking – we provide light lunches every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. We usually have soup and a roll or salad plus quiche or alternative followed by a choice of 2 puddings. You could help prepare/ serve food or washing up afterwards
We have a community charity shop three times a year, staffed by volunteers.
