Volunteer as part of #TeamGSTT and help make a real difference to our patients!
Once you’re signed up you’ll receive a monthly email of volunteering opportunities. Most of these are on an ad-hoc basis, so you’re free to give as little or as much time as you can.
What can you do?
We have many types of volunteering opportunities, which include:
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.
