Ad hoc Volunteering

Fundraising Events

Throughout the year we run various events to raise awareness about our work and much needed funds to continue our services. We always need volunteers of all shapes and sizes to help run stalls selling cakes or registering event participants, setting up or putting away equipment, collecting money and handing out leaflets, and much more.

Contact us on fundraising@dens.org.uk or 01442 800268 and we'll let you know whenever there's an event coming up.

Decorating, Gardening, Spring Cleaning

From time to time we have ad-hoc tasks such as decorating, clearing a garden or doing a big Spring Clean. If you are a community group or a business then this can be a fun way to team build. We would love to hear from you.
