There are almost no limits to what you can do to help us. If you have an idea or a question, please use the contact form on this page and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Meanwhile, here are a few suggestions from us:
Volunteer in one of our shops
We are always looking for more people to join us in our two shops. Help sort donations, talk to customers or serve at the till; not only will you help us but it is also a great way to get experience.
Become an event volunteer
Hallswood tries to not only attend as many events we can but also arrange our own events. The events could be anything from a day at the market stall in the city or a small educational event on how to garden for wildlife to help out at our Christmas event; a day that involves the help of over 40 volunteers.
Volunteer at the Sanctuary
To join our volunteer group at the Sanctuary you will have to start out as an event or shop volunteer.
No time but still want to help?
Why not appeal to your friends, family and neighbours for donations for our shops? Any fabric, even stained or ripped, helps us. Anything that we cannot sell is sold as rags and to show how important rags are; well, they pretty much pay our shop rents. Nothing too small, it all adds up!
No time but a bit of money?
We are always in need of good quality hay and straw, cat food (tinned and biscuits), good quality wood flakes for bedding, towels, flat newspapers, blankets etc.
Friends of Hallswood
With more and more volunteers helping us we can now arrange more events than ever. No matter if is is a jumble sale, collection day, haymarket stall or carboot; It is important to us that our staff and volunteers are easy to spot as many of these events are so well attended it is hard to tell customer from helpers 😀
As always, cost is so important to us and we want to make sure that the money you guys donate goes to the animals, not promotional stuff or admin. So when Calder Designs very kindly offered to print us some tabards at cost we could not have been happier!
Thank you so much!
