Make a Smile
Make a Smile is a registered charity that provides enrichment to children in hospitals and children facing disadvantages in the community such as disability and deprivation. This is primarily done through the medium of character visits (think superheroes and princesses).
We have a range of opportunities for volunteers including Trustees, committee members, characters and magic makers (help out of costume).
The Fundraising Manager organises centralised fundraising such as major events and online initiatives. They also provide oversight to the Fundraising Officers within the chapters, ensuring they are supported and capable in their role, offering ideas, advice, assistance and ensuring legal compliance.
A character is someone to visiting children in hospitals or children with disabilities in the community, as a beloved children's character (think princesses/superheroes) to provide enrichment activities such as a meet and greet or a storytime.
Make a Smile Magic Makers help facilitate Make a Smile events by supporting characters at our visits to hospitals and to children in the community, be it facilitating interactions or running enrichment such as doing magic, arts and crafts or balloon animals!
