Get involved

 

 

Volunteering and fundraising are two key ways you can get involved. We also benefit from the support of the ‘Friends of Wainman Trust’ group and for those looking to work for the Trust. The following are details of current volunteering opportunities.

4 Ways to Support us

Volunteer

There are numerous ways you can volunteer with the Trust: taking part in sponsored events, helping us put on a special event like a concert, making or selling crafts, hosting a coffee morning, helping with administration, applying to trusts for funding, printing leaflets, designing posters, manning exhibitions, sourcing materials and numerous other activities, all are equally important to the Trust.

If time is not something you can give, perhaps you would like to help sponsor an event? Even a small amount can make all the difference.  If you would like to help in this way we will be happy to give you specific details about our sponsoring needs for any fundraising event.

Friends of Wainman Trust

Our ‘Friends’ are very important to the charity and bring with them a broad spectrum of expertise.  They support the trustees in their decision making, increase our profile by sharing our aims and objectives with their contacts,  invent ways to raise funds, prepare artwork, find suitable venues for events, share professional experience, attend and manage craft fairs and much, much more. They are looking for more team members. If you would like to join them please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.

The Friends of Wainman Trust are:

Fundraise

Why not support the Trust by organising your own fundraising event. It doesn’t need to be anything as daring as a parachute jump, just something that gets people involved and raises the Trust’s profile by communicating what we are trying to achieve.

Perhaps you have a skill that you could charge for? One lady is doing French conversation lessons for a week and another is teaching a group how to make successful pavlovas! It’s even more fun if you can involve your family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues or churches too.

If you are thinking of running an event we would be very happy to support you by featuring the event on our facebook page and on the website. Our Directors are also very happy to talk to interested groups about the vision and aims of the Trust. Please contact us to make arrangements.

Pray

We place a great deal of importance on prayer. We have got this far by the grace of God and our amazing donors and sponsors. Although this is a huge project requiring a large amount of money, we are encouraged and inspired by our God for whom ‘nothing is impossible’ (Jer 2:17, The Bible)

Since October 2013 there has been a significant increase in the profile of the Trust and we are delighted that recent activities to increase awareness have been so successful.
