A huge thank you to our volunteers. Volunteers are vitally important to Cobalt and new volunteers are always welcome. Cobalt volunteers help at our events, they upcycle cards, help in our busy Fundraising Office and help at home by baking or knitting.
We don’t have a typical volunteer. However, every person who volunteers for us has one thing in common; they’re absolutely vital to our work.
Our volunteer Maxine gives an insight into her time as a volunteer at Cobalt.
I first volunteered for Cobalt in 2020. I really enjoy helping to do something useful and meeting people. It is also for a great cause. My duties can be varied from manning the reception desk, data entry and computer work, sorting stamps, filling card stands and putting card boxes together. I help with a computer survey once a month for Finance. I have also been able to volunteer for the Steam Rally at South Cerney – putting up the stand, helping on show days and dismantling after the show. I’m retired so happy to fit in, Wednesday works in well for any long weekends away !
What our volunteers are saying...
“Hannah really enjoyed her day helping to sort the cards and said it had given her a totally new perspective of the roles of Cobalt.”
Kath and her granddaughter Hannah volunteered to help Cobalt during the Big Sort
Volunteering “can be flexible; it can part of your weekend; you get so much out of it. It’s the best thing, the feeling that you get when you know you’ve helped raise money for a charity.
We make each other laugh a lot. We take great pride in what we do because it’s worthwhile for Cobalt.
