Help us by volunteering!

Volunteering can be so much more than just doing a good deed: It is a great way to develop skills, meet new people, get exercise, spend time outdoors, or even to mix up your routine. We have lots of opportunities for volunteering and we need all the help we can get to change the lives of the 35,000 jobless disabled veterans out there. From corporate team-building, challenge events and bucket-shaking – we need you! So take a look at the list of opportunities below and see if you would like to get involved.  

How can I volunteer?

Enjoy a spring afternoon in beautiful surrounds whilst giving your time to a fantastic cause!

Trumpeters’ House sits on the site of the old Richmond Palace, nestled between Richmond Green and the River Thames. Each year we give visitors the opportunity to enjoy the tranquillity of the gardens with a cup of tea, slice of cake and traditional lawn games.

We are looking for a team of enthusiastic volunteers to help us on the day with a number of activities including:

  • Setting up and clearing down the event
  • Ticketing
  • Information stand and guest hosting
  • Running games
  • Serving refreshments

We run many events around Richmond and London throughout the year to raise awareness and vital funds for our service, many of which could not go ahead without our dedicated volunteers! With roles from stewarding and bucket-­shaking to handing out leaflets and cheering, our events are always fun. You can commit as much or as little time as you want, so what are you waiting for? Get involved!
Go the extra mile and take on an unforgettable, life ­changing challenge event for The Poppy Factory! We have places in mud runs, marathons, sky dives and other challenge events around the country, so get in touch if you want to get involved. Great for team building or for just doing something out of the ordinary, our challenge events are for people from all walks of life and #TeamPoppyFactory will support you all the way.
