Events volunteer

Our annual Care for Kids Barnstaple 10k takes place in July each year. We have a variety of volunteer roles including marshals, cake bakers, cheerers and more! As a volunteer you will play a vital role in the smooth running of the event and your support will also make a huge impact to the runners experience of the day. There are many other ways you can volunteer please register your interest here.

Bucket collections

Thoughout the year we arrange bucket collections to make pounds from those loose change pennies. You can join us or arrange your own. If you are part of a choir you could incorporate some songs into your collection. People often donate more when you are putting a show.


Are you part of a business or office group looking to support a local charity? You can host your own fundraising event, become a sponsor for our popular Barnstaple 10k event or donate your services or products for us to use in raffles and auctions.

Help us raise awareness

We are always looking for people to spread awareness of Care for Kids North Devon’s work.  We want people to know that all funds are spent locally and are for the specific needs of North Devon families when they receive the terrible news that their child has a life threatening illness. You can also become an ambassador for your local area.

Register your interest and we’ll do the rest!
