  • It’s Volunteers Week!

Happy Volunteer’s Week! Volunteers are truly amazing. They give their free time to support the causes that they believe in and without them, many charities (including Bubble) would be lost.

Who are Bubble volunteers?
Bubble volunteers come from a whole host of different backgrounds and vary in age. Just like our participants! They usually have an interest in theatre or the arts in general as well as free time during the day, evenings or at weekends. When they arrive for a post, we always take care that they are DBS checked, properly fed and watered during their shift and that their travel expenses are covered later. Volunteers are most commonly involved in Bubble events (everything from smaller rehearsal room sharings to outdoor public performances) but on occasion they can be called upon for fixed duties in other areas. For example, our recent recruit was a minute taker for Bubble’s monthly trustee meetings, which is a very different job. 
What do Bubble volunteers do?
That said there’s no limit to the range of activities our volunteers might be tasked with here at Bubble. Sometimes tasks relate directly to a person’s skills and experience and other times not. Here is just a small selection of what you could get up to if you volunteered with us:
  • Distribute event flyers and posters locally
  • Take part in a drama group/session as the second person in the room
  • Help to make scenery for a performance in the Rotherhithe Shed
  • Make signage for events
  • Serve tea and coffee to participants 
  • Declutter the costume store
  • Source props
  • Paint the walls at Bubble HQ
  • Help to set up and pack down an event
  • Man front of house
  • Usher
  • Collect donations

And that’s just the start. We’re a theatre so we like to get creative! 

Huge thank you to all of our volunteers, past and present, for supporting our work. We appreciate you!
