We can assist you with planning and running a range of fundraising activities that will count towards the requirements of your volunteering section, and we are able to sign off your hours for this. For example taking part in our annual Sunrise Walk is a great way of raising funds and getting in some walking practice for your expedition.
Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE)
How you can get involved
In addition to fundraising, at Silver level we accept DofE participants aged 15 years and older as volunteers within our charity shops. Volunteering in our shops can help you build your CV, learn new skills, and have fun too! We have shops in Surrey and west London (view their locations here). You will need to commit to a two-hour shift each week for a six month period. You can do this either after school or at weekends.
As well as fundraising or volunteering in our shops, if you are 18 years of age you can also apply to volunteer in our hospices in a variety of roles. We will need to carry out a DBS check which is a simple online process.
