Volunteer Vacancies – Fundraising & Finance

The Gingerbread Centre provides housing and support for families that find themselves homeless, including young pregnant teenagers.

Do you have a few hours to spare each month?

Are you interested in providing a helping hand to a local charity?

We are currently looking for volunteers with enthusiasm and the ability to work both independently and in a team. Do you have a friendly outlook and an interest in meeting people from a wide variety of backgrounds? Could you help in either of these areas:


This is an exciting opportunity for you to get involved by supporting our fundraiser regularly with collections and events in your community. There are a variety of activities available including:

  • Collecting at various locations such as supermarkets, workplaces and public places
  • Talking to supporters about our work
  • Arranging collections in your community
  • Co-ordination of collections – you may wish to advance to recruiting and leading a small team of collectors
  • Active promotion of the Stoke on Trent & District Gingerbread Centre
  • Handing out promotional leaflets


Our finance department are looking for a cash counter. You would be required one day a month to assist with counting and banking cash raised at charity events. Prior experience is not required as training will be given.

What We Offer:

  • Meet new people and be part of a dynamic and inclusive team
  • Gain experience and confidence by interacting with the public
  • The knowledge that you are making a difference to people’s lives
  • Learning opportunities so you can represent Gingerbread with confidence
  • Repayment of any travel expenses

If you are interested in providing a helping hand please email finance@gingerbreadcentre.co.uk to arrange an informal chat in the New Year.
