Volunteer for WellChild at Dobbies this Christmas

We're looking for willing and enthusiastic volunteers to support Dobbies in-store fundraising throughout the Christmas period

To volunteer, email us at volunteer@wellchild.org.uk

Date: From Thursday 2nd November until Christmas

Location: Dobbies stores across the UK

The partnership with Dobbies will see fundraising events in all 34 stores across the UK, ranging from Inverness in the North of Scotland to Ashford in the heart of Kent. As well as this, an exclusive range of British designed Christmas decorations are being launched with proceeds split between two charities, WellChild and Action for Children. Each store is also hosting a Wish Tree, where customers can purchase a Christmas bauble to place on the tree – all proceeds will go directly to the two charities.

WellChild is looking for willing and enthusiastic volunteers to support our in-store fundraising throughout the Christmas period (2nd November – Christmas). We are looking to have a presence at each of Dobbies 34 stores, so if you feel you have a couple of free hours to help us raise money in your local store please do get in touch. Depending on your availability, your time in store would be spent engaging with Dobbies customers encouraging them to donate their spare change to WellChild and helping the store staff with sales of the make-a-wish Christmas baubles and tickets to Dobbies Family Fun Day (which is taking place on 18th November). Please do get in touch if you feel you can help.
