There are several ways that you can get involved with Colostomy UK.
Volunteers are at the heart of our charity. Our volunteers support people with stomas, and their families, carers and friends in many ways. They represent Colostomy UK at open days and events, they answer calls on our 24-hour stoma helpline, support our befriending service, are our trustees, help out in the office and manage our Facebook support group. They act as consultants on the literature that we write and sit on the editorial board for Tidings. Volunteers can also get involved in fundraising and campaigning, working in their local community to influence change, for example stoma-friendly toilets . The skills, experience, time and energy they bring to our charity, make a difference to the lives of people in need.
If you would like to discuss volunteering opportunities, or perhaps have some skills that you think might add value to our charity, please do get in touch with Max, our Volunteers & Community Manager. Maxyne.McGinley@ColostomyUK.org or call 0118 939 1537.
We are a self-funding charity and get no statutory aid. This means that fundraisers are very important to us. Without their efforts, we couldn’t fund our services, projects and campaigns. Our fundraisers do everything from organising cake sales to running marathons.
If you would like to fundraise for us then please contact us and ask to speak to a member of our fundraising team.. You can e-mail us too : GetInvolved@ColostomyUK.org or call on 0118 939 1537. We can explain how we can support your efforts and give you some great fundraising ideas too. As you’ll see, his emphasis is on the fun aspect of fundraising!
