Event Volunteers assist us on a casual basis by supporting our special events as coin collectors, marshals, guides and by undertaking several other tasks at events like the Wellington Christmas Parade and the Wellington Children’s Hospital Street Appeal. We are always looking for more helpers so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join our casual volunteer group.
The Community Trust of Wellington enabled the Foundation to purchase a baby grand piano for Wellington Hospital’s atrium. Volunteers play the piano every day, to the great delight of patients and visitors. We also have a number Volunteer Soloists (e.g Violin, Harp, Guitar) who bring their own instrument and play for patients and families.
We have volunteers in the Emergency Department 7 days a week between 9am – Midnight. Volunteers usually commit to a weekly 3 hour shift. Our Emergency Department volunteers assist patients and their families by providing comfort and care in emergency situations.
Mothers with babies in Wellington Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and in Wellington, Kenepuru and Kapiti Hospitals Delivery Suites on Mothers Day receive a special handmade baby quilt from the Foundation’s Volunteer Quilters.
Please note there are no vacancies for knitters at this time. We would welcome Quilters and Sewers.
Our next street appeal is on Friday 29th September 2017. If you are able to spare two hours between 7am-5pm on this day and would like to help raise funds for Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital, we woudl ove to hear from you.
