Time is one of the greatest gifts of all so why not volunteer with us by using your organisational volunteer hours? Being such a small team, volunteers are a huge driving force for the charity and without them we wouldn't be able to run so many of our events to support our fundraising efforts.

We don't have a garden. We don't need your team to paint a room. What our children need is equipment to help them live their best lives!


They want all terrain buggies so they can go on days out with their families to the beach. They want trampolines to support rebound therapy and help develop muscle tone. They want trikes to go on bike rides with siblings and create special memories that will last a life time. They want equipment that will enable them to do the things we take for granted. And that means fundraising.


Think outside the volunteering box and lets chat about different ways you can spread some sunshine!

Enjoy an evening of glitz and glamour by volunteering at our annual ball, Question of Sport or Glass Slipper Awards...

Spend a few hours on a Saturday bag packing at one of our organised events...

Donate your skills and spend some time in our Sunshine HQ office...

Could you organise and manage your own event to support us?

Or could you hold your own event?

Who doesn't love an office bake sale, pub quiz or dress down Friday?

Why not host your own event to fit around your events calendar or tie in fundraising with an existing event your organisation hosts?


We love nothing more than hearing what our supporters across the North East are doing to support us so please do get in touch if you plan to hold your own event so we can provide and support or guidance you may need.

We have a little cupboard packed with fundraising supplies so please let us know should you wish to use any collection buckets, banners, t-shirts or sashes for your event.

As we're such a small team, it is sometimes hard to attend every one of our supporter events however we will always do our best to send a representative along if you let us know details in advance.
