We couldn’t do what we do, without you!
At Variety – the Children’s Charity, volunteers are the backbone of our organisation. We couldn’t run our events, or raise anywhere near as much money as we do, without their hard work and dedication.
If you’ve ever thought about donating your time to a worthy cause, then look no further than our Volunteering Program. Whether you’re a member of the community, looking to help out at night or on weekends, or part of a corporate team looking to engage your staff through social responsibility initiatives, there are so many ways to get involved with Variety!
