Have your say

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is appealing for volunteers in the Skegness area to help children and young people in the area raise vital funds.

The nation’s heart charity urgently needs adult volunteers to work with nurseries, schools and colleges who choose to support its life-saving work in the region.

Volunteers will help teachers inspire children and young people to take part in nursery Olympics, primary skipping, senior Dodgeball and college go red days, all designed to encourage fitness and raise funds for the BHF and the school.

The BHF already supports children and young people in the area through its wide range of award winning books, games and websites which are specially designed for each age group.

One out of every 145 children in the UK is born with a heart defect and the charity provides information and guidance for their parents as well funding more heart research than any other UK charity.

We urgently need volunteers in the area to help make a real difference to our work with children and young people.

For this role you need to be available during the school day at least half a day a week and should be comfortable speaking in front of groups of children and young people.

It helps if you have a car to visit schools and you also need a computer and email account.

You don’t need to be a teacher, but it is important that you enjoy talking with children and young people from ages three to 19 and are passionate about beating heart disease in your community.”

The BHF provides all the resources you will need for this role. To register your interest or for more information, please contact Helena Mair, Fundraising Volunteer Manager on 01522 541451 or email mairh@bhf.org.uk
