Our Fundraising Heroes fight back against loneliness, stop fear in its tracks and keep people alive for longer – all while having fun at the same time! Join us as a volunteer at our St Andrew’s Ball on Friday 24th November 2024 and help our Fundraising team ensure this is a night to remember, while supporting them to raise vital funds.
About Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland
We are Scotland’s health charity supporting people and their families across Scotland with Chest, Heart and Stroke conditions. We want to make sure people living with one of these conditions are living life to the full. We will advocate for better health for everyone and work to make sure there is help and support in every community. The care and support we deliver every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to. Across Scotland, over 1 million people are living with the effects of Chest, Heart and Stroke conditions. We will support people by providing advice, information, and support through our No Life Half Lived strategy across Scotland. These services include our Advice Line, Stroke Nurse Service, Community Support Service, Health Information, Health Defence, Education and E-learning and our Peer Support Groups.
We are looking for volunteers who enjoy engaging with people; are friendly, polite and cheerful; have the ability to get to and from the event safely; and are able to volunteer as part of a team.
Briefing and role-specific information will be provided by email in the lead up to the event. A verbal induction will be provided by the event manager upon arrival.
