Volunteer

Fundraising volunteers are vital to our work at Guy's and St Thomas', which is why we’d like to invite you to be part of #TeamGSTT and help make a real difference to our patients.

By signing up as a volunteer you will receive a monthly opportunities email, straight to your in box! We do not ask our volunteers to commit to a specific number of days or hours as most opportunities are on an ad hoc basis, therefore you can give as little or as much time as you can. 

What can you do?

We have lots of different types of volunteering opportunities which include:

Event support we hold a range of fundraising events throughout the year, and our volunteers frequently get involved by helping to direct guests, setting up equipment and merchandise and giving out programmes and leaflets. 

Community fundraising support this involves tasks like leaflet distribution, selling raffle tickets and placing and monitoring collection tins. 

Bucket collections and awareness 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. 

Please note, most of our events take place in the summer months, but we will always keep you up-to-date with our monthly mailings throughout the year.
