Supporter groups

Many of our fundraisers have a personal connection to Hannahs, and have witnessed first-hand the work we do with those with a range of disabilities.They choose to raise money for us to help us continue providing the high quality services at both Ivybridge and Seale-Hayne, that support their family or friends. Others have become part of our Hannahs family from visiting our Seale-Hayne site and have been inspired to support us through challenge events and community fundraising.

Joining a Hannahs Supporter Group offers the chance to build closer links with the charity, whilst forming new friendships and making a real difference. On average, our Ivybridge Supporter Group raises £5,000 a year from doing so many different activities: from hosting fashion shows, lunches to manning cake stands at local agricultural shows. Each Supporter Group has its own character and ideas for raising money.

What is being a Supporter all about?

  • Becoming a vital part of the Hannahs fundraising efforts, by organising events in aid of our charity
  • Joining a group of like-minded people, promoting Hannahs and spreading the word about the work we do
  • Representing Hannahs in your local community
  • The opportunity to hold a responsible position in a group, such as Chairperson, Secretary or Treasurer (dependent on vacancy)

What you will get out of joining a Supporter Group?

  • The chance to develop a range of new skills and gain valuable fundraising experience
  • Opportunities to meet new people, and develop a new network of friends
  • Have fun and get creative!
  • A chance to work as part of a friendly and supportive team
  • Play an active role in your local area
  • An opportunity to find out about, and get involved in, a local, thriving charity
  • Flexibility – it’s up to you how much time you want to give. Groups meetings are usually arranged to suit members’ availability.

What do you need to volunteer?

  • A friendly, efficient manner and good communication skills
  • Knowledge of your local area and community networks
  • This role will require travel within your agreed working area, so you may need access to a vehicle/public transport
