Do you have some spare time on your hands this summer?

Volunteers already play an integral role in supporting Hospice, we currently have over 500 volunteers helping us to deliver care, raise income, and act as our voice in the community, saving us over £1 million each year.

As we prepare to launch our exciting Wallabies Gone Wild trail, the role of volunteers will become even more important.

Trailmakers 5


Sponsored by SMP Group, our Wallabies Gone Wild volunteers are called ‘Trailmakers’ and will be helping to support the art trail in many ways:

Helping in our shops – During the trail our shops will act as hubs for all things wallaby and will be the place to go to collect trail maps, purchase merchandise and unlock sculptures. We are looking for Trailmaker volunteers to support us in extending our shop opening hours so that we can open for longer hours, including Sundays.

Maintenance of sculptures – Over their 14 weeks on public display our beautiful sculptures will require plenty of TLC, including cleaning and reporting of any damage. We are looking for Trailmaker volunteers who would like to take care of individual or multiple sculptures between May 24th and September 1st .

Trail guides – We want as many people to participate in the trail as possible and will be looking for trail guides to be out and about on the trail distributing maps and helping trail participants to download and use our app.

Operational support – For those who prefer to work behind the scenes we will also be looking for support with pricing and packaging of our merchandise, moving and installation of wallabies and various other operational activities.

Event support – Throughout the summer we will be hosting many Wallabies Gone Wild related events and will be looking for Trailmakers to help with logistics, sales and operations at each event.

Becoming a Trailmaker provides you with a chance to do something fun and fulfilling this summer. You will be part of a diverse and friendly team and will make an invaluable contribution to both the lives of our patients and families who will benefit from the trail, and the wider community who will participate and enjoy the trail over the summer.

All of our Trailmakers will be given adequate training, and uniform and equipment  where appropriate.

We will be running two sessions covering what being a trailmaker entails and will offer you more information.

  •  Monday 13th May - 6 -7.30pm
  •  Wednesday 15th May - 1 - 2.30pm

Whether you have a small amount of time to spare, or you are able to support regularly during the 14 week trail, we would love to hear from you. Please contact or call 647463 to register your interest.
