Our fundraising volunteers help in many ways, from holding dinner parties, to cheering on race participants, to walking to Everest Base Camp. There is something for everyone in this area.

We have two areas that ambassadors can work in, local community groups of small numbers, or larger events. Those who enjoy public speaking and have a passion for the Trusts work. Some of our ambassadors are service users or have been in the past, or they know people who have benefited from our support.
"Having experienced the services of The Sara Lee Trust as a patient, I now find it very rewarding to speak to groups and individuals about all the ways the Trust can support people in the local community. It's a great way to give back while also spreading the word about all the great services on offer."
