City Hospice volunteers play a vital role in the work of the charity, and we have a range of opportunities available.
Could you spare an hour or two to support Cardiff’s local hospice with a bucket collection?

- Saturday 3rd August, 10am – 4pm
- Wednesday 7th August, 11:30am – 4pm
Cardiff Airport, Rhoose
- Thursday 15th August, 10am – 4pm

City Sparkle Station
Our now famous City Sparkle Station sees us paint the city with glitter, with hair and face glitter at Cardiff events and festivals. We’re looking for volunteers to help us with our busy summer schedule by taking money and applying glitter – all to raise funds and awareness for City Hospice.
- Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August, Evening/Night
An Evening of Queen, Sophia Gardens
Collection Box Coordinator
Collection Box Coordinators drop off and collect our charity collection boxes across Cardiff. Volunteers can also help source new venues to hold boxes. This role is fully flexible, working whatever hours and time commitment you can give.
If you are a sociable person with good networking skills and an outgoing personality then this is the volunteer role for you. You must be aged 18 or over and have your own transport. Local knowledge of the Cardiff area would be an advantage.
Patient Drivers support with City Hospice’s day centres by transporting patients to and from their homes to our hospice centre in Whitchurch. Our patients are based across the city and often need support with transport to attend on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. By using your own car to transport our patients, you’ll be enabling them to socialise with other people, receive complementary therapies, and have some much-needed entertainment.
Our patient groups run Tuesday and Thursday between 1:30pm and 3:30pm, with patients coming from across the city.
Patient Minibus Driver
Patient Minibus Drivers support with City Hospice’s day centres by transporting patients to and from their homes to our hospice centre in Whitchurch. Our patients are based across the city and often need support with transport to attend on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Some of our patients have limited mobility so need to arrive via our minibus in a wheelchair instead of a car. By using our minibus to transport our patients, you’ll be enabling them to socialise with other people, receive complementary therapies, and have some much-needed entertainment.
Our patient groups run Tuesday and Thursday between 1:30pm and 3:30pm, with patients coming from across the city. Due to insurances purposes, drivers of the minibus need to be aged 25 or over and under the age of 70. Ideally, you’ll have previous experience of driving a minibus (3.5T).
Entertainers, Talkers, and Workshop Leaders
Do you have a special talent or could you give an interesting and engaging talk or workshop? We’re looking for people who want to make a difference to our day groups by providing entertainment. In the past, we’ve had musical performances, talks from beekeepers, gardening workshops and art classes.
Charity Shop Assistant
Could you support one of our seven charity shops in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan?
Our shop volunteers work tirelessly six days a week to raise money for our clinical service but are always in need of support.
Volunteers take part in a range of tasks such as sorting donations, steaming clothes, pricing and providing excellent customer service in the community. By volunteering in our shops, you’ll become part of a friendly team. You’ll also be giving something back to your community.
We’re currently looking for volunteers in the following locations:
