Volunteer stories

Celebrating our amazing team

See what some of our Save the Children UK volunteers have to say about their experiences.

What's it like to volunteer for Save the Children UK?

Meet some of our volunteers - they do it for many different reasons but have the same vision: to make the world a better place.

Meet Kaf

Kaf, volunteer

Kaf is the Shop Leader in our Eltham shop in South London. 

"Volunteering is an addiction for me! I am thankful I fell into volunteering in the shop. Giving back saved me. It improved me, made me look outwards rather than inwards.

Our customers come from all different walks of life. I find my confidence has increased chatting to so many people. We always take time to say thank you to people giving donations, coming in the shop to look around, buying items or dropping some coins in the pot."

Find out more about the day in the life of Kaf .

Thank you Kaf for being part of Team Save the Children!


Meet Alison

Alison volunteer.

Alison has been volunteering as Branch Chair of our Anglesey Branch in North Wales for 28 years.

"We’re all here for the same reason. We know when we’re making a cup at a coffee morning it isn’t just a cup of coffee. It improves children’s lives. When we collect money outside our local football and rugby clubs in the rain, it will improve children’s life chances."

Find out more about Alison's role.

Thank you Alison for your many years of dedication! 

A huge thank you to all our volunteers!
