Volunteers can organise their own event or help at one of ours. Either way, you are bound to have a fun time and feel good about making a worthwhile contribution to Barnardo’s work.

We have put together a Fundraising Information Pack which will tell you everything you need to know.

Barnardo’s runs a host of fundraising events throughout the year that you may wish to attend as a guest or volunteer. Find out more details of regional and national events.

Why did you choose to become a fundraising volunteer?

Johnny, a volunteer fundraiser

"I chose Barnardo’s as my charity to raise funds for as I admire the work they are undertaking with children and youngsters. I have children of my own and my wife and myself do our best to bring them up to be kind, caring and thoughtful about the needs of others who are not as lucky as them. It is a great comfort to know that there is an organisation that understands what is happening out there on the streets, that is doing its utmost to help these vulnerable youngsters to overcome these difficulties. Raising money to help fund this work, is a way of my family being ever thankful for our children and trying to help those who have not been so fortunate". Johnny

Johnny Johnson of South Wales has run marathons in Cardiff, London and Paris in aid of Barnardo’s. Last year, Johnny ran seven marathons in seven days and encouraged pupils from local schools to run part of the way with him, raising a wonderful total of £2,600. Johnny has won awards for his commitment to fundraising for us.
