Volunteers ​Needed


The Shoebox Fairies is a volunteer led charity making a difference to people in and around Wigan. We need your help to deliver and expand our shoebox projects in 2021 and beyond. 


We have lots of exciting plans for the year ahead and although it may seem like months away, at Shoebox Fairy HQ we are always on the countdown to Christmas. Off the back of a successful 2020 Christmas shoebox appeal, we've also recently launched our new Mother and Baby box programme.

We are looking for volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to join the expanding Shoebox Fairy team. Join us and help support more new mums, reach more isolated and vulnerable people, and spread a little sparkle - one box at a time.


Why should you volunteer?

  • Meet new people and make new friends

  • Share your skills and experience 

  • Enhance your CV

  • Support a local charity and make a difference in your community

There are lots of ways to help!

Do you have a talent for raising money?

Think you are cracking when it comes to creating content?

Do you have a keen eye for detail and presentation?

Do you have time to help us network?

Can you collect and process donations?

Have a business that can act as a drop off point?

We need you!

Whatever your experience, talent or availability - as long as you are full of fairy fighting spirit we would love to hear from you. We structure our volunteer roles to your strengths and your availability. If you're looking to develop your confidence or skills, we'd like to support you.

We’re looking for people with a positive attitude and a commitment to supporting The Shoebox fairies.
