Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity are looking for volunteer drivers to support vital hospital services. As one of our valued Drivers, you will visit various locations around the country, collecting and delivering items as required. Inductions with the relevant departments will be provided.
Volunteers will be contacted when a collection or delivery is required, and most journeys will be planned in advance. This is a flexible role where you can choose when you are available to support, and journeys will be given based upon your preferences and availability. The frequency of assignments will vary according to request demands.
Founded in 2001, Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity (formerly known as Yorkhill Children's Charity) was established to support children and their families treated at Glasgow's Royal Hospital for Sick Children - Yorkhill. In June 2015, the hospital moved from Yorkhill to the Royal Hospital for Children at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, where we are proud to support it today. Since 2001, we have invested more than £30 million in the children’s hospital in Glasgow. This has been possible thanks to the generosity of our donors, fundraisers and volunteers, whose support ensures that Scotland’s children receive the best possible care.
