Get Involved

Volunteer with us

MK Friends of Milton Keynes Hospital & Community rely on volunteers to help run their shop, trolley and stall, as well as fundraising events. We are always looking for more friendly people to join our team. It’s a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and give something back to the community. Volunteers find it rewarding and really feel like they are doing something worthwhile. Some of our opportunities include:

  • Helping in the shop on the till, serving hot drinks, taking customer orders and filling shelves
  • Taking the morning trolley round the wards for the benefit of patients and staff
  • Fundraise on the stall at the hospital and around the community
  • Do your own fundraising in the local community or your place of work
  • Become a trustee to help move the charity and the shop forward

Help us support the patients, staff and visitors of MK Hospital by volunteering a few hours a week, bi-weekly or even monthly, we have a range of opportunities to suit everyone. If you can help, we would love to hear from you.

Fundraise with us

Fundraising is an important part of MK Friends of Milton Keynes Hospital & Community. Without fundraising we would have not been able to purchase all the items we have over the years for patient care.

We need your help to achieve this. There are many ways you can help raise funds and here are a few ideas:

Sponsored Events
To ensure your safety, make sure you do it through a professional organisation such as https://www.ultrachallenge.com/

  • Milton Keynes Marathon
  • Trekking in the Mountains
  • 3 - Peaks in the UK

For Those Nearer Home

  • Get your work place to have us as their named charity for the year
  • Have a collection box at work or sports or social club
  • What about a Coffee morning or Bake Sale.
  • Organise a quiz night
  • Or perhaps an idea of your own

Get creative with friends, family or colleagues, if you have an idea or need any help, please get in touch.

Donations

MK Friends raises money throughout the year from its shop, stall and donations.

We are currently raising funds for the new Cancer Centre. So far we have purchased 24 reclining chemotherapy chairs and 24 TVs. There is still money to be raised to provide those little extras for our day and overnight patients.
