St Joseph's Hospice
Founded in 1905 by the Sisters of Charity, St Joseph’s Hospice is one of the oldest and largest hospices in the UK.

St Joseph’s Hospice relies on the generosity and support of our local community to permit us to continue providing for our patients and their families. We need to raise around £7 million a year to keep the Hospice running and source income through a number of channels. By becoming a fundraising volunteer you would be directly assisting us with this mammoth task and ensuring that we can be there for everyone who needs us the most.

Whether you would like to volunteer on a regular weekly or monthly basis or if your time available to volunteer is on more of an ad hoc basis, we would love to welcome you to the Fundraising Team!


Supporters of St Joseph’s Hospice take on challenge events throughout the year, including running, walking and abseiling and we want to cheer them to show how amazing they are! The events cheerer role requires commitment on a one off basis and whether you are able to come to 1 event in the year or 8, we will kit you out with your very own St Joseph’s Hospice T-shirt and clapper to help you make as much noise as possible! Events usually take place on Sundays 


As an events steward you will be asked to stand in a key location for our Great East End Walk or Light up a Life remembrance event and help to direct supporters to show them which way to go. Depending on placement you could be in position for 1 hour or up to 5 hours but every role is vital in helping us ensure the event is well run and our supporters have a positive experience.

Who will the volunteers be working with?
Normally the Fundraising team and other volunteers.
Full support and guidance will be given by the Fundraising team before the event and during the event too.

Time commitment

This role tends to be more ad-hoc so its not a regular role, so if you can commit to one its fine, but if you cant commit to the next one due to work or studies- that's fine too!
Events tend to happen across the role, we would contact you with details of the forthcoming events with plenty of notice.
Application deadline
