    Volunteer at our events

    As a small team we are always looking for new volunteers to assist us with our events. This may be in our office in the run up to the event or on the day itself. We have a range of tasks to suit all interests so please get in touch if you would like to get involved.

    Did you know that many employers allow their staff to complete volunteering days in work time? Why not ask if your company has a volunteering scheme in place?

    Before our events...

    In the weeks leading up to our events we require help with various tasks including packing goody bags, wrapping prizes and sorting through donations such as bears for our teddy bear tombolas. We occasionally also require helpers to carry out activities such as painting picnic tables for the CHUF Toddle.

    On the day...

    CHUF has a varied events calendar requiring a wide range of volunteer support. Our annual CHUF Toddle at Close House requires as many people as possible to dress up in character and assist on our stalls with previous events having close to 100 volunteers in attendance. We also have balls, golf days and many other events which we simply couldn't run without the outstanding support of our volunteers. From selling raffle tickets to spotting for our auctions, we can't thank our volunteers enough!

    For full details of all volunteering opportunities or to sign up as a CHUF volunteer please visit the volunteer with CHUF page.

    Sponsoring our events

    Sponsoring a CHUF event will not only support our fundraising but will also boost your business!

    We have various sponsorship packages available for each event and can also tailor packages to suit your needs. Get in touch for more details!

    Clare Cannon, Community Manager intu north said:

    “intu Eldon Square and intu Metrocentre were delighted to sponsor the first ever Hearts and Handbags event. The centres have been long standing supporters of CHUF, fundraising to sponsor a room in Scott House parents accommodation which CHUF helped to build at the Freeman hospital.”

    “intu Metrocentre have been supporting the charity since 2014 when we launched our crystal heart initiative which raised over £20,000 and the heart chandelier now hangs in the platinum mall as a reminder of the work we have done with CHUF. We hope everyone will dig deep to support this wonderful charity.”

    Donations & Gift in Kind

    In order for our fundraising events to succeed we are always looking for prize donations and gift in kind support. If you are able to help by donating items for our raffles & auctions or can provide services such as complimentary printing, catering or entertainment please let us know!

    We particularly need new and pre-loved designer handbags and accessories for our annual Hearts & Handbags event in the spring!
