Volunteer for us

2019 is a big year for our charity with increasing numbers of families coming to us for support, a calendar of exciting events and work on raising our profile underway. We have six new volunteering opportunities we need help with - could it be you ? Our volunteers are the lifeblood of Cherry Trees and without their tremendous support and our donors Cherry Trees would not exist. Voluntary support enables us to keep investing in our respite care which families so desperately come to us for.
