Charity Champion

A new flexible way to Help our Hospitals Do More

What are we looking for?

We want enthusiastic and friendly people to join our team in our new and important Charity Champion role. Being a Charity Champion is a flexible way of supporting our hospitals and the work of Imperial Health Charity through a variety of local events, awareness opportunities and fundraising activities. Charity Champions will work with other volunteers and staff to promote what we do in a positive way, helping us run fun and exciting events as well as raise funds for the hospitals.

What’s great about being a Charity Champion is the flexibility – you don’t need to commit a regular weekly slot (unless you want to) and you can choose the events that you want to volunteer at. All we ask is that you commit to a minimum of one event per year.

What will I do?

  • Engage with patients, visitors or members of the public and encourage them to take part in the activities on offer
  • Welcome visitors with a smile, assist with registration where required
  • Talk to members of the public enthusiastically about the Charity to raise awareness about our work
  • Offer appropriate Imperial Health Charity publications/materials
  • Answer general queries and direct any specific questions to an appropriate member of staff
  • Help with any fundraising activities such as bake sale or tombola etc, depending on the event
  • Help us to set up and take down an event or stand where required

When will this role take place?

The timing of the events will vary. They can take place across weekdays and weekends.

Commitment:

We ask that Charity Champions commit to volunteering at a minimum of one event per year.
