Fundraising Volunteer Groups & Community Champions
We are looking for new Fundraising Volunteer Groups!
- Do you have a skill that you would like to use or develop?
- Would you like to meet new, like-minded people?
- And above all, would you like to help raise money for a great cause?
If so, a Fundraising Volunteer Group may be for you!
There's no fixed format to the groups, all that's needed is a group of people (it doesn’t matter how many) who can get together, raise funds for KEMP Hospice + have fun at the same time!
How you raise the money is up to you!
It could be hosting coffee mornings, car boot sales, quiz nights, collections at supermarkets or down the pub – the opportunities are endless!
We can provide you with the support you need to start your Fundraising Volunteer group and answer any questions.
If you would like to set-up a Fundraising Volunteer Group in your area or would like more information, please contact KEMP's Fundraigin team on 01562 756066 or email email@example.com
KEMP Community Champions
KEMP Hospice are on the hunt for Wyre Forest residents who can take on the challenge of becoming a KEMP Community Champion.
A KEMP Community Champion is someone that could be an ambassador for the charity and would work with other volunteers in their community to arrange fundraising for KEMP and to champion the work that they do. Working together with other Champions, or within a voluntary group they would be people in the community who can rally people around a cause and be able to set up a Fundraising Volunteer Group.
KEMP Community Champions need to be able to volunteer for approximately 4/5 hours every two weeks and be able to organise local people to join a KEMP Volunteer Fundraising Group. Groups can be any number of people who are able to get together, plan events or collections that will raise vital funds for KEMP Hospice who will provide fundraising support.
Volunteer Fundraiser at KEMP Hospice, Elisabeth Smith said: “I started as a volunteer at KEMP Hospice because I saw what a great impact KEMP has on the people who need bereavement support or the incredible clinical care they provide for people with life-limiting illnesses, and I wanted to help raise money so that work could continue. Now KEMP want to find and support people, especially in the Bewdley, Stourport and outskirts of Kidderminster areas that can help KEMP carry on their amazing work. KEMP Hospice celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2019 year, and 2018 marked the fifth anniversary of their children’s bereavement service called ‘KEMP for Kids’ as well…it costs around £1.5million a year to provide a full range of care services and I hope to find people in the community that can help me fundraise for KEMP.”
“A KEMP Community Champion would be somebody that has a real ‘get up and go’ attitude, someone that has a ‘can do’ mentality and be able to bring people together to create a fundraising volunteer group whilst being supported by KEMP. These groups could create quiz nights or organise coffee mornings and car boot sales in aid of KEMP or they could go out collecting money together with collection boxes at local supermarkets. How they would like to work as a group is entirely up to them, I just need to find people, our Champions that can set the ball rolling. KEMP Hospice is such a fun place to be, despite the difficulties many people who need us face. People wrongly assume that a hospice is a somber, depressing place but in our Day Hospice there isn’t a day that goes by where people aren’t smiling and laughing. It would be great for communities to come together, to do something positive, to work together and have fun at the same time and maybe make new friends. KEMP want their Community Champions to be people who can see the great work being done here and can spread that message throughout the Wyre Forest.”
