Event Volunteers

Fund-Raising Event Volunteers

We organise various fund-raising events each year – including the ‘Fireworks and Fun’ event at Maidenhead United Football club, the Maidenhead Relay Marathon, the Link Foundation Ball and other, smaller fund-raising activities.

We need help just before and during our planned events with activities such as putting up posters, setting up stalls, collecting and delivering equipment, contacting suppliers, acting as event stewards, event planning and organisation.

If you’d like to help for a couple of hours – or a whole day – we’d really appreciate it and we’re sure you’d have fun too! The sorts of things we need help with are extremely varied and can be dependent on your skills and preferences.

Application Process

Throughout each month The Link Foundation receive application forms from referees; these are representatives within the Berkshire area who are happy to act on behalf of local families. They can be Health Visitors, Head Teachers, Social Workers or Healthcare Professionals, or anyone that works within the community and identify a need within a family.

If you think the Link Foundation might be able to help, you need to contact one of our strategic partners first. This may be your local GP, Health Visitor, teacher or one our charity partners.

They are best placed to discuss your own personal circumstances with you in confidence, and they may also be able to direct you to other sources of support. They will also be able to explain the application process and assist you in making your application.
