We are looking for volunteers to join our team. We need people who are friends and supporters of Purple Heart Wishes, and who can be the face of the charity in their communities.
Our volunteers are a network of people, based across the UK – who organise/partake in fundraising activities, representing the charity in their local area and helping to engage people.
Purple Heart Wishes is happy to accept financial donations, goods, skills and services from sole traders, medium companies, corporations, charities and Trusts to continue its aim of one day being able to gift a wish to someone living in the UK battling a terminal illness.
Our events are only successful through the help and support of businesses both local and national. If you would like to get involved with a fundraising event anywhere in the country we would be happy to discuss what opportunities would be available to promote your goods and services.
Ambassadors help raise the charity profile, encouraging others to understand and support the organisation and promoting Purple Heart Wishes work with all groups.
Tasks: Promote Purple Heart Wishes to help raise our profile, actively seek introductions to possible corporate partners, high net worth individuals and others, make use of personal and external networks to help raise awareness of Purple Heart Wishes and speak knowledgeably about the organisation.
One of Lyndsey’s lifetime dreams was to travel through Thailand and Vietnam, so we raised over £25,000 pounds to send her on a trip of a lifetime. Lyndsey’s illness prevented her from staying any longer than 3 weeks, but she had an incredible time and loved it - she didn’t want to come back. Lyndsey survived 18 months after that trip and we filled everyday with fun, laughter and lots of amazing experiences.
After Lyndsey’s passing we decided that instead of raising money for brain tumour research, we wanted to create a charity to give other adults suffering from terminal illnesses the chance to fulfil their dreams, just as Lyndsey had.
If you or a close friend or family member is suffering with a terminal illness we would love to help you achieve a wish or a dream - simply complete an application form and send it back to us.
