Join us!

Whether it’s for an hour a week or a couple of days each month, there are lots of ways you can help support work that makes a real difference to patient care in Bristol city centre hospitals.

Our team of enthusiastic volunteers helps with anything from putting up posters in the hospitals and local community, taking shifts at the Fundraising Hub, and cheering for our fundraisers at events such as the Bristol half marathon. If this sounds like something you would like to get involved with, simply fill out an application form and we'll get back you!

Here are few ways you can help:

Community support volunteer  

Could you help promote the work of Above & Beyond by delivering charity flyers and posters to businesses in your local area? This is a chance to talk to the community about the fantastic work that takes place in our hospitals and is ideal if you can only support us for an hour or two every month.

Events volunteer

Do you want to support events such as the Bristol 10k or our annual Christmas Star Concert at Bristol Cathedral? Tasks will range from setting up stalls, cheering on fundraisers, selling merchandise, acting as ushers for concerts, carrying collection buckets and engaging with the public. Again, this is ideal for volunteers who require some flexibility.

Fundraising Hub volunteer

You can help build a welcoming atmosphere in our Fundraising Hub at Bristol Royal Infirmary by chatting to staff, patients, families and members of the public about what we do. We’re open on weekdays between 10am and 5pm (4:30pm on Fridays) and currently sell second-hand books and handmade greetings cards, run bake sales and accept donations.

Please note that the Fundraising Hub is closed until further notice. Find more information about the closure.

Corporate volunteering

We are currently working on finding lots of great volunteering opportunities for teams from businesses. More information will be coming to this page soon or you can get in touch with our Corporate Fundraising Officer Gemma on [email protected] to express your interest.

If you have any queries about volunteering before filling out the application form, you can contact Volunteer Co-ordinator Lindsey on [email protected] or 0117 992 6472. Her working days are Tuesday to Thursday.
