There are a variety of ways that you might consider donating your time to support our work. For many volunteering is a way of giving back to an organisation that may have assisted them or a family member. For others it’s a ‘feel good’ factor knowing that they are making a difference. Whatever your motivation we would welcome you with open arms.
Our major event where we need every volunteer possible is our Annual Appeal. The week long activity culminates in a Street Day across the county and having communities out and about wearing our lovely orange colours, shaking buckets not only raises money but also awareness.
There are also on-going local activities that you may be interested in. These range from providing administrative support at the Arthritis New Zealand office, or assisting at events and expos across the country.
