People in volunteering roles at Guildford’s Royal Surrey County Hospital make a vital contribution to the services it provides.

Royal SurreyCurrently, the hospital has a number of opportunities for people who want to get involved – from fundraising to being a community champion or a Royal Surrey ambassador.

The hospital’s charitable fund community fundraising manager Gemma Craig said: “We have daily sales at the hospital selling items, such as books, bric-a-brac and children’s clothes and toys, that have been kindly donated. These stalls are run by volunteers who will take donations, chat to customers and help set up and take down the stall. The sales are on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9am to 2pm.

“Volunteers are needed for one to two hours to collect money outside Guildford Tesco store, near the hospital.

“We have a number of events where we need volunteers on an ‘as and when’ basis. These include things like attending summer / Christmas fairs and are seasonal.
“We are looking to recruit people within our community who care about the hospital and are willing to go out into the community to spread out message. A community champion will deliver talks and presentations to community groups when asked or invited. All information and training will be provided by the hospital’s charity.”

Gemma adds that volunteers will need to go through the process of becoming an official volunteer which can take a while. She adds: “However, I can make sure I keep in touch with them throughout the process.”
