Volunteering opportunities in June

1st June 2015

What’s coming up in June?

Volunteer week  June asks

Are you able to help us with any of the following events in June?

Sunday 14 June – Friday 19 June - Unison Annual National Conference, SECC Glasgow

We have been very fortunate this year to be chosen as the Charity of the Year for UNISON!

We have the opportunity to have a stand at their annual week of conferences in June. This will be a chance to raise a lot of awareness with delegates attending the conference.

We are looking for several volunteers who can help with handing out literature and talk to attendees of the conference about meningitis and the services that Meningitis Now offers. We may also need some help on Saturday 13th to get the stand ready. You don’t need to be available for the whole week just one day would be a huge help.

Saturday 20 June – Toddle Waddle, Glasgow

Volunteers needed to help lead groups taking part in a Toddle Waddle organised at Loch Lomond Shores in Glasgow. Starting from 10am until 4pm. Toddle Waddles are a great way to have fun and raise money at the same time.

Sunday 28 June - Marquee in the Park, Alice Park, Bath

Marquee in the park is a classic 60s/70s bike show designed especially for scooters, with 60s and 70s themed fancy dress and music, and they have chosen Meningitis Now to benefit from the proceeds raised at the event.

We have been given an area to have an awareness stand and raise funds. Can you help on the day to hand out leaflets and S&S cards, and talking to the public about the charity.

Have you been inspired this week by the amazing work our volunteers do?

With a wide range of roles and events we offer, I’m certain that there’s something that sparks your interest. We wouldn’t be able to achieve what we do without the help of our volunteers, so no matter if you can give 1 hour or 100 hours, your support will help us in our fight against meningitis.
