Volunteer Speaker  with Whizz-Kidz (Gloucestershire) (Ref: 1154)
 
Opportunity picture
In the UK today, too many disabled children lack the equipment and opportunities they need to live life to the full and reach their true potential. Whizz-Kidz sets them free by providing the right mobility equipment and skills to build their self-esteem, confidence and aspiration. By joining in and volunteering, you can help transform children’s lives.

Here at Whizz-Kidz, they want to tell everyone about what they do! You could help us grow at grass roots by becoming a Whizz?Kidz Volunteer Speaker. Becoming a Volunteer Speaker is very rewarding as you get to meet new faces from all walks of life and help let them know about all the activities and services Whizz-Kidz offer for young disabled people and turn them into Whizz?Kidz supporters. This could involve a 10 minute talk in a school assembly or at a rotary club or having a cup of tea and a chat with key people at a networking event. You might also be asked to pick up cheques, which really has the feel good factor! You get to see just how hard people have worked to raise funds for them and help change the lives of disabled children and young people - what better way to spend your day!
