Fundraising volunteer roles

As a fundraising volunteer, you will be part of a community that raises awareness and vital funds for our life-changing services. We have flexible roles to suit your availability and interests. You can volunteer on your own or join your local fundraising group and get together with a group of lovely locals and share Guide Dogs’ amazing work with your community. Host a pub quiz, reach out to schools or buddy up with businesses.

We have around 400 fundraising groups that represent Guide Dogs in their local communities across the country. From Inverness to Jersey, each group is unique in what they do. Activities include; organising events, hosting coffee mornings, taking part in collections, supporting schools and businesses to fundraise and lots more. All with the support of their local Community Fundraising Team.

Sue talks about her volunteering journey, starting as a Puppy Raiser and now a Fundraising Group Coordinator for Guide Dogs. She explains the role and what she gets out of it:

“I enjoy volunteering as I like to talk to people at our events and relate the Guide Dogs story, I love seeing all the puppies grow and move on to advanced training. I like getting everyone involved in events, love getting prepared for events, whether that’s collecting cuddly toys or organising prizes for the tombola or raffles. 

My experience as a volunteer has been brilliant. I’ve made a whole new group of friends - we all say it’s our Guide Dogs family."
