Like many organisations, the ongoing situation with COVID-19 has significantly impacted our volunteering programme, so opportunities to volunteer are fewer at the moment. However, events are starting to return and we'll be looking to involve volunteers in these wherever it's safe to do so.

Because we know some of you like to plan ahead, we’ve pulled together the list below of current* dates for the challenge and music that we usually get involved in. Volunteering involvement at most events is subject to confirmation so they're not all available to apply to just yet. We're opening the applications process on a rolling basis, so if your event isn't yet available, please check back soon for details on how to sign up. Of course if your chosen event(s) has an application process mentioned - then go right ahread without delay!

And for those of you not ready to return to events this summer/autumn,  we’re also working to develop new ways for people to give their time to the charity. These will include opportunities to volunteer from home.
