  • The satisfaction of knowing you are making a vital difference to the work of The Lodge Trust and consequently to the lives of adults with learning disabilities and their families
  • The opportunity to develop new and existing skills and gain experience volunteering in a charity, enhancing your CV
  • The opportunity to meet new people
  • Regular updates on organizational activities

Skills and qualities we are looking for

How much time will I need to give?

We encourage our volunteers to organize at least one fundraising event each year and attend our two annual sale days here at The Lodge Trust in May and November if possible. However, this role is designed to fit around you and what time you can spare to help us to fundraise in your local area.
