Covid-19 has presented unique challenges to how our supporters can volunteer and fundraise for Stoll. Although many of our usual volunteer opportunities are still on hold, they are still plenty of ways to get involved in supporting Stoll during this time.
As many of our scheduled events have been changed or cancelled throughout this time, many charities have moved their fundraising efforts entirely online, encouraging people to come up with their own creative ways to support the causes they care about. If you have an idea or would like to fundraise for Stoll, please contact is at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A great example of this at Stoll has been Roland Anderson’s 2.6 Skipping challenge, which arose out of the cancelled London Marathon. To read more about Roland’s efforts, follow the link below.
Alternatively, if you are needing some inspiration, see below the 23 ideas that UK Fundraising have come up with.
Health & Wellbeing Volunteering
While our Health & Wellbeing team have adapted significantly to the lockdown, they are playing a vital role in supporting both the physical and mental wellbeing of our Veterans. We have been overwhelmed by the support that many individuals and organisations have made to the team throughout these challenging times. Prominent contributions include;
- The Smile Brigade and Sainsbury’s Fulham Broadway who have been delivering food parcels to many of our most ‘at risk’ Veterans at our Fulham site.
- The Chelsea FC Foundation, who have supported Stoll in getting a package of online activities set up and loaning Stoll with ten tablets for residents to use.
- Award-winning presenter and author Liggy Webb, who supported Stoll with 90 copies of her mental health booklet alongside a range of activities being available through mental health awareness week.
When restrictions are eased, there will be greater opportunity to get involved which we will update you on here. If you would like to support our Health & Wellbeing team, please contact them at Wellbeing@stoll.org.uk
