Barnardo’s appeal for county volunteers

Have your say

Barnardo’s is appealing for people across Northumberland to consider giving up a little of their spare time to raise money to help vulnerable children.

The charity is looking for people to become fund-raising volunteers in their local community and help raise cash to support Barnardo’s projects across the region that work with disadvantaged children, young people and their families.

The volunteering role could involve placing collection boxes in the community; getting involved with donations raised by schools, organising fun events or generally inspiring others about the charity’s work in the area.

Barnardo’s volunteers –who are all ages and come from all walks of life – are given training and on-going support.
