How you can get involved:
In the words of our volunteers:
“Volunteering as a dance helper gives me a chance to feel part of a team again. All the volunteers and teachers are so friendly and I feel valued for the small contribution I make. It gives the children so much joy when they’re enabled to express themselves through dance – I feel proud to be part of the Flamingo Chicks team.” – Julie, Dance Helper
“Becoming a volunteer with Flamingo Chicks made a positive contribution to my wellbeing during lockdown and furlough from my job. The May100 challenge led me to meet many other volunteers and it was great to be able to share our enthusiasm for fundraising with fantastic results. I am proud to have been able to contribute to this project which has enabled the charity to make a big difference to many young lives across the UK.” – Katharine, Operations and Fundraising Volunteer.
