Make a Smile

Welcome to Make a Smile! This project is currently running virtually (where possible) in light of Covid-19

We believe that all children deserve a childhood and understand that illness or disability can make this very difficult for some children.

Our goal is to help these children to enjoy their childhood. We endeavour to be professional, forward-thinking and well trained but hold at the forefront of our practice that fun is the number one priority for both children and volunteers. 

There are usually three different volunteer roles available for this project - 

  • Character - attending events, playing games and interacting with the children as a character
  • Magic Maker - attending events, playing games and interacting with the children out of character. Often act as supporting staff. (good jumping pad to becoming a character)
  • Imagineer - an underrated role; not attending events but helping with the general running of the project, organising events and helping with costumes etc. (great for anyone short on time or not wanting to attend events)

This year we will be running as many in-person events as possible but with the current lockdown, we've introduced some exciting new virtual projects including online video calls, BSL Singalongs and online training for volunteers! Due to this new virtual interface, we can work around you! Its up to you which projects you would like to undertake and you can do them in your own time!
