Volunteer at Stoll

Our volunteers are key to helping us raise money, engage with the community and support our events.

Why does Stoll need Volunteers?

Our fundraising team is vibrant, ambitious and looking to expand so we can raise much needed funds to continue the work we do to help vulnerable Veterans. It is an exciting time to volunteer for Stoll as we continue to grow the Fundraising Department, and you could be a vital part of the team and our future plans.  We are looking for volunteers to help at bucket collections and support the events team, and also admin volunteers to support the fundraising office.

What would I be doing as a Bucket Collection volunteer?

  • Raising money using collection buckets at designated underground and train stations, supermarkets and sporting events.
  • Acting as a positive and friendly representative of Stoll.
  • Answering basic questions about the support we offer our vulnerable Veterans.
  • At some sessions, taking responsibility with another volunteer to act as ‘key contacts’: picking up collection buckets and other materials from the fundraising department based in Fulham, attending the full collection, and returning the full buckets after the collection.
  • Working alongside Veterans who live at Stoll and volunteer their time to help us raise money.

 

What skills and attributes would be useful?

  • Passion for the welfare of vulnerable adults and ex-Servicemen and women.
  • Enthusiastic, energetic and a positive manner.
  • Organised, and able to work independently.
  • Experience of fundraising or volunteering for a charity (desirable not essential).
  • Experience handling money on behalf of an organisation (desirable not essential).

What skills and experience will I gain?

  • Experience fundraising for a charity.  Your bucket number will be noted and you will be informed how much you raised when the money is counted.
  • Experience volunteering with the public and our beneficiaries (the Veterans) of the organisation (Stoll).
  • Experience volunteering as part of a fundraising team.
  • Learn about rules and regulations of public fundraising.

Where would I be volunteering?

Collections will take place in various locations across London.  We have housing schemes in Aldershot, Chiswick, Fulham and Hounslow so our collection points would be no longer than hour away from each centre.

When would I be volunteering?

Collections take place at various times and days of the week.  Volunteers select collections that suit them and we ask for a minimum 6 month commitment with at least 3 collections in that time.  Hours vary from 3 – 6 hours for each collection depending on your availability.

We have several events planned throughout the year and at various locations in and around London.  Events take place at Stoll locations in Aldershot, Chiswick, Fulham and Hounslow as well as external venues.  We are looking for volunteers to support us at challenge events like The London Marathon and The Prudential Bike Ride, at military lectures, commemoration events and family fundraising events over the summer months.

When would I be volunteering?

Events take place at various times so a degree of flexibility would be required.  You will be able to sign up to an event once it’s confirmed and with no less than a month’s notice.  Some events may take place at weekends and evenings, with times varying.  We ask for a minimum commitment of 6 months and a sign up to 2 events within that time.
