Volunteer Opportunities

Throughout the year, we have numerous fundraising opportunities upon which we are reliant on volunteer support for their success. These can include bucket and street collections, event support at organised sporting events, information stands at fetes and exhibitions, and representing ELF at community event presentations and talks.

On this page, we list all volunteer opportunities for which we need support. If you can donate a couple of hours of your time to volunteer at an event, then we'd love to hear from you! Please contact our fundraising team to register your interest. Email enquire@elfcharity.org.uk or call Andy and Gary on 01392 493344 (option3).

Exeter Chiefs bucket collection
Saturday 13th January 2024

This season's ELF bucket collection at Exeter Chiefs is for a great game: Chiefs vs Glasgow Warriors in the Heineken Champions Cup! It is a 1pm kick-off so volunteers will be needed from 11.30am until 3.30pm (approx). You will collect donations before and after the game, plus during half-time. Between collections you can enjoy watching the rugby.

It is always a great afternoon out at Chiefs, for both rugby fans and those attending their first match. We need 30 volunteers for this one, so friends and family are welcome to volunteer alongside you. Please note, volunteers must be aged 16 and over.

To register, please email Andy at andy@elfcharity.org.uk
