Team Tŷ Hafan Volunteers

Volunteering at Events

Events are held all over Wales and are coordinated by our Events team. However, on event days, we rely on our volunteers for support to help make sure the day runs smoothly and on time! Volunteers can help set up the event itself, check people in at registration or even cheer on the participants.

If you are looking for one-off volunteering opportunities then event volunteering is the way to go! They are lots of fun, as well as being a great way to meet people, support a fantastic cause and get out and about!

And if you enjoyed yourself, we’d love to welcome you back at our next event. There’s always another one just around the corner so your help is always welcome.
