Volunteer with Above & Beyond

Do you want to give something back to the community? Would you like to get some events experience and find out what it's like to work in the third sector? Be part of the Above & Beyond team and help us to make a difference in Bristol's hospitals.

Please email hello@aboveandbeyond.org.uk or call us 0117 927 7120 to get involved. 

Our Above & Beyond volunteers are very special people. Their help means we can achieve so much more in our hospitals. Some do it because they have a personal link with us, whilst others just want to help, like Hana (pictured below). Hana volunteer

Whoever they are, our volunteers help us with anything from filing to marshalling, or making use of their own special skills to raise funds. Every one of them gives their time and energy freely – even though we often call upon them at short notice! We couldn’t manage without them.

"Often people feel nervous about making that first step but I would say, pick up the phone and see... After my first day I loved it and knew I wanted to come back. Everyone here feels like a friend."

Here's a few ways you can help: 

Fundraising Volunteer Volunteer as a fundraiser

We are looking for volunteers to help raise funds for Above & Beyond. This will involve planning and organising your own event – maybe a bake sale, a raffle, a fashion show, a fun run - to raise vital funds for our city centre hospitals.  

Flyers & Posters Volunteer   

We are looking for volunteers to help promote the work of Above & Beyond by delivering charity and fundraising information to businesses in their local area. This is an ideal opportunity to talk about the fantastic work that takes place around our hospitals and how members of the public can also get involved in supporting their hospitals.  

Event Support Volunteer Volunteer at our Events

We are looking for volunteers to help us with a variety of events, some organised entirely by us and others that are third party but in aid of Above & Beyond.  We need people to: man our information stands; marshal and cheer competitors taking part in active events; sell merchandise; act as ushers for concerts; carry collection buckets and engage with the public – a whole variety of roles depending on the event. 

Fundraising Hub Volunteer 

Within the Welcome Centre of the Bristol Royal Infirmary we have a Fundraising Hub where staff, patients, families and members of the public can come and speak to usand find out more about what we do. We open on weekdays between 10:00am and 5:00pm, but we would love to have more volunteers joining us there to help build a welcoming atmosphere. We currently sell second-hand books & handmade greetings cards, run bake sales and accept donations at the Hub, but we could do so much more with your help.
