Childrens Charity - Over The Wall - Volunteers Sought
I am reaching out because I am the Director of Volunteering from a children’s charity called Over The Wall, that provides free of charge residential camps for children and their families affected by serious illnesses. (otw.org.uk) Many of the children we have at camp will be vulnerable in many ways, not just through having a health condition
I was thinking about how we can get more people to know about the camp, for families that may want to attend, and for people that may wish to volunteer. We have camps in Dorset, Staffordshire, Yorkshire and Scotland
We have a range of volunteer opportunities, from residential to day volunteers, we are looking for volunteers with specific skills, for example safeguarding, photography, sports etc.
Our Day Volunteer role is new role, and I was thinking about the kind of person that may be interested in coming to a residential camp daily. I thought about those who have retired, but would have many skills that they have learnt over many years of experience, and that it is a shame to lose those skills, but also a wealth of experience that would be beneficial for those at the start of their career journey.
