VOLUNTEERING

Interested in volunteering for Universal Harvest? That is FANTASTIC!

First of all, thank you for looking into becoming a Universal Harvest Volunteer (UHVOL). On behalf of those at Universal Harvest, your time, effort and support means a lot to us.


HOW CAN YOU VOLUNTEER?

Universal Harvest is not only in need of food donations or financial support, but we are currently looking for volunteers for any of the following roles:

  • ADMINISTRATION

We need some volunteers to help us manage our day-to-day administrative tasks, this includes; writing letters, managing our enquiry line, responding to email enquiries, managing appointments / visits and food deliveries.

  • DRIVERS

Do you hold a full valid UK licence and a vehicle? Do you have some spare time?

If you’ve answered “Yes” to both questions, we would love to hear from you. As you know a lot of our workload involves visiting the sites of other charities / communities and organisations. We are in need of drivers to help us make deliveries.

  • FUNDRAISING – PUBLIC RELATIONS (PR)

If you are good with Social Media, then this role is for you. We would like some volunteers to help us manage our social presence and be the forefront of improving our public relations. Your thoughts and expertise on how we advertise our cause to reach a wider audience will go a long way. Please do contact us today, to find out more.

  • EVENTS MANAGEMENT

Having someone who can help us organise our events will be a great aid to ensuring that we host the most effective events and reach the right audience. If you have any interest or current experience in this field, we are in need of your support. We will also connect you with our events team.

Please fill in the registration form below for any of the above roles you would like to volunteer for! Or email us at volunteers@universalharvest.org if you have any further queries regarding our volunteering opportunities.


RAISING MONEY FOR US – ORGANISE YOUR OWN FUNDRAISING EVENT

If you don’t think any of the above roles are suited to you, but you would still like to help us, then have you thought about organising your own events to raise money for Universal Harvest? If so, we would love to hear more information about the events you will be running and if there is anything we can do to support. Tell us the time, details of the event and we would love to support you. There is no restriction in what and when you can do your event, we do have some guidelines of what to consider, so please get in touch with us.

Any money raised can be sent to us online via our MyDonate profile page, Cheque or Postal Orders. Please see our DONATE page for further instructions.

Connecting your event to Universal Harvest is easy. You can create your own online page on MyDonate and link it to our profile. Or if you are having any issues doing so, please do contact our Administration team who will be happy to help.


SO WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT?

We know that saying thank you alone is not enough to show our appreciation for your support but we hope that in becoming a UHVOL, this will also benefit you. Becoming a volunteer will provide new skills, experience for future job applications, confidence building, meeting new people and being part of a team. At the end of the year, all UHVOL’s will be entered into a prize draw where one individual and one organisation who has supported Universal Harvest will win a special gift directly from the UH family. We look forward to welcoming you into our energetic, fun and exciting team!
