Every day people from all walks of life are happily donating their knowledge and energy
to help so many different Not-For-Profit Organisations.
‘Volunteers do not get paid, not because they are worthless,
but because they are priceless’.
Carol realises many people have such full and busy lives of their own, but if you are that one person who may be able to Volunteer just a few hours a month you are the person Carol needs to hear from to help make our vital work possible and to keep the Ian Parker Bipolar Fund perpetual.
You may think there is not much you know about Bipolar Disorder, have never been a Volunteer before and think this all sounds a little daunting.
I promise you there is nothing at all too daunting!
We have the greatest fun times creating the many and varied unique themes for each fundraising event and know you too would love and enjoy working with us.
If you wish to become a Volunteer to help the cause of Bipolar Research, gain much richness from the social aspect of giving, learning, sharing, caring and enjoying meeting new and passionate like-minded people who are about making a difference in the world of Mental Health
