Fundraising is key to ensuring FSN continue to support local children and families so why not get involved and join the volunteer team at FSN to help make a difference in our community
 
What do fundraising volunteers do at FSN?
There are a wide range of roles from helping with the annual golf day, open gardens, quiz nights, shop collections, coffee mornings, lunches and high teas to administration and promoting FSN within the community. Volunteers also run their own events for example, open gardens, coffee mornings, half-marathons, music evenings and art and environmental talks
 
Who is volunteering for?
Anyone who has free time to spare whether for a one off event or regular attendance, there is no minimum or maximum time, just what fits in with your own life. Every hour will help our Events Team fundraise for FSN.
 
Volunteering not for you?

    Comment from King's Church:

    'It has been a privilege to have Dragofnlies as our 'local charity of the year' 2018/19. It's been a pleasure to raise money for you through our Christmas, Easter and general events throughout the year. We hope this money will make a difference to Dragonflies and the children who benefit from such vital support'
     
    They raised £4,000. What a fantastic achievement.

SuccessES


I just want to thank everyone at FSN who have made the last two years so amazing. I have learnt so much and met so many inspiring people. The work you do with the community truly changes lives, as it changed mine. The courses you provide have led me into employment and given me the skills to create a life for myself.
I will continue to sing your praises to those that I meet and tell people about the amazing work that you do and hope that FSN thrives for many years to come. I know you'll touch many lives as you did mine.

I do feel that safeguarding and wellbeing of the children is fully prioritised and staff go to great lengths to support families and children. The Nursery demonstrates empathy and works hard to ensure fairness for families/children here. Really stands out as 'safe space' for children.

"I started to volunteer with FSN in the Health and Wellbeing Hub in July 2018. In September I started a Level 3 course at FSN through another of their projects and I am also looking into doing a degree in psychology next year. Once I complete the degree I hope to start a new career path and help others and work towards removing the barriers to mental health. The course started me on this new path and changed my life!"
