Capital Sci Fi Con Event Volunteer

Capital Sci-Fi Con, is Scotland’s ONLY not for profit convention that brings the world of pop culture, movies and comics to life in the heart of Edinburgh. Over the last six years, the event has raised over £300,000 for the children and families who need us.

Volunteering includes selling tickets for the CHAS tombola, looking after the busy cloakroom, welcoming guests walking through the door, collecting donations, keeping our props and spaces clean, and being a reception representative.

About Children's Hospices Across Scotland

CHAS provides the only hospice services in Scotland for children and young people with life shortening conditions. CHAS offers care in two children's hospices - Rachel House in Kinross and Robin House in Balloch. Rachel House was Scotland's first children's hospice and opened in 1996. CHAS also provides a home care service, called CHAS at Home, staffed from both hospices, and with dedicated teams in the north of Scotland. The service offers care to families in their own homes when they need it most.
