There are lots of reasons why people choose to volunteer for The Grand Appeal.  You might have professional skills to offer or simply have some spare time that you’d like to put use for a good cause.  Whether you have a few hours free on a regular basis or just the odd evening or weekend available, we’re always on the lookout for people to help!

Festival Stewards

Nailsea and Backwell Beer & Cider Festival is held every summer at Nailsea & Backwell R.F.C . This year it will be held on Friday 7th to Sunday 9th July and we’re thrilled to announce that The Grand Appeal has been selected as their charity partner. Over the weekend, it also showcases local bands and music and has a cracking atmosphere not to be missed.

If you’d like support this event, you can buy tickets and join the fun through their website:  http://www.nailseabeerandciderfestival.co.uk/ or you can do something really special and complete a shift as a Grand Appeal steward over the weekend!

As a volunteer steward, you will be helping to man the entry gates to ensure this event is once again a huge success.   If you are looking for an opportunity to give something back, this is a fantastic way to support Bristol Children’s Hospital whilst soaking up the atmosphere at this hugely popular event. 

And as a thank you for your hard work, the festival organisers have offered our volunteers free entry wristbands and commemorative festival glasses.  So once you’ve finished your turn on the entry gate, you will be able to join the event!


Wallace & Gromit Appearances

Throughout the year, Wallace & Gromit are invited to events to help raise funds for Bristol Children’s Hospital.  It’s a really magical opportunity to bring smiles to children’s faces and we need volunteers like you to help deliver these appearances as the much-loved duo. 

Dressed in our official Wallace & Gromit character costumes, your role will be to wave, shake hands with children and pose for photographs with families.  It’s a hugely satisfying role that brings enormous pleasure to the children (and adults too!) that you meet.
