Are you interested in becoming a Fundraising Volunteer for your local children’s hospice? Read Colin Love’s story and find out how much he enjoys raising money and awareness for Helen & Douglas Hosue.

Volunteer Colin Love, from Cookham, started volunteering in fundraising last year.

Colin said:

“What inspired me to join the Helen & Douglas House team as a fundraising volunteer are the fantastic facilities at both houses, the outreach teams, and the dedication & commitment of all the staff in providing quality of life and support to children, young adults & their families.

In my role as a fundraising volunteer I work with local companies and schools on a variety of projects to raise funds for Helen & Douglas House. I am also organizing a Ball on 10th October at the Crowne Plaza in Marlow to raise funds for the charity.”

Colin is now a Helen & Douglas House trustee.

Volunteers play a vital part in the work of Helen & Douglas House and their dedication makes a huge contribution to the charity.
