Become a Charity Champion…
Volunteering has so many positive benefits, it can help you to enhance your skills and experience in a wide range of opportunities while you are supporting the aims of our charity and helping Renal Patients in Wales lead a better quality of life. We love working with a diverse range of people from students studying their Welsh Baccalaureate in school through to retired citizens who want to fill some spare time.
We are looking to recruit 50 Charity Champions this year-2016 to help our charity progress through a wide range of initiatives that ultimately help improve the lives of Renal Patients in Wales. As a Charity Champion you will play an integral part in helping the charity to move forward and grow through a range of activities from helping us promote events to helping us at events to fundraising to day to day support of the charity. The role you take part in will help you to build on a wide range of skills from communication, team working, customer service and many more.
We are looking for Charity Champions to volunteer as much or as little time as you can permit; an hour a month or just helping out at one event can greatly improve the services we provide to our beneficiaries – Renal Patients in Wales.
As part of our recruitment drive we will be holding our first information seminar for a maximum of 10 willing volunteers on the charities 3rd birthday and WORLD KIDNEY DAY 10th March 2016 at our offices at 10.00am to 12.00pm. You will get to meet the team and discuss the roles we are looking to recruit and discuss any other suggestions you may have that will support our charities aims. After our launch we will then be holding 4 further seminars from Tuesday 15th March 2016 with the final seminar on Tuesday 5th April 2016.

WORDS FROM A CURRENT CHARITY CHAMPION:
Ben is one of our fantastic Charity Champions, this is what he has to say about volunteering with us:
“One of the reasons I decided to volunteer for PPF was mainly to build up my experience in volunteering and working in the third sector. Volunteering for PPF allowed me to develop many of my skills such as time management and also team building as they have a diverse selection of roles for their volunteers so if you’re looking to develop your skills in a certain area, PPF will help facilitate this. I volunteered for the Where’s Wally run that PPF set up each year. It consists of a 10 mile, 5 mile and 1 mile kids run. The role that I was asked to do was to help out with registration, oversee the kids 1 mile run and present them with awards and also keep record of the 5 mile runners finishing times making sure they were all accurate and correct. I found that they day was very successful and ran very smoothly due to excellent planning by the organisers and clear instructions to the volunteers so they knew and I, myself knew where we should be and what it was we should be doing. As a volunteer, we always had something to do and were kept busy which made the day go even smoother as there was no standing around not knowing where to go and what to do. I will definitely be volunteering with PPF in the future as it’s for such a great cause and they allow volunteers to improve upon many important skills that are needed in the day to day running of things”
