Volunteer for us

Can you spare time on an ad hoc basis to help with YMCA Lakeside fundraising events and other fundraising activities throughout the year?

We are busy planning events and activities to raise funds for our YMCA Lakeside School Facility ‘Changing Young Lives’ Appeal but in order to make these successful we need the help of volunteers to work alongside our brilliant and enthusiastic staff.

From an hour or two once a year to regular involvement at multiple events, any time and expertise you can spare is gratefully appreciated.

By volunteering for YMCA Lakeside you are helping to change the lives of over 1 million children and young people who attend our residential and day courses and subsequently gain skills and character traits that with serve them for the rest of their lives.

What kind of things can I help with?

From sitting in a supermarket manning a stall or collection bucket, to marshalling at our Mud Dash event. There is something to suit everybody. Below are some examples of the skills and help we need:-

Bag Packing   |   Cake Baking   |   Collections (street and store)

Distribution of posters in your local area |

  Event set up   |   Marshalling

Public Speaking
