Teddy Bears Picnic - Saturday 17 April
Heart Kids Waikato

Estimated Time: 4 - 6 Hours Over 1 - 1 Days

We are looking for people with a big heart to volunteer to help us at our upcoming fundraising/awareness event - a teddy bears picnic. This event is open to the public but put on by Heart Kids Waikato, we'll be selling things and taking donations at the event as well to make money. We'd love if there were some people to help with the following: - Volunteering to be on the merch table - Walking around with collection buckets - Photographer - People who like to dress up and interact with kids - Helping with set up and packdown After this last year, we've struggled a lot with money coming into the branch so this is a new idea we're trying to not only help us support children living with a heart defect and their whanau but also to help us get our name out in the community - not many people know we exist, and I'd like to change that.

Working location
