How you can help

Using creative talents and entrepreneurship skills, there are many ways you can contribute as an Auxiliary member:

  • retail and customer service experience might make you the perfect addition to an Auxiliary that runs stalls, markets and pop-up shops
  • if you are a designer, craftsperson or a chef, you can create handcrafted items
  • if you’re an experienced event coordinator or just know how to throw a great party, you could help organise fundraising events
  • you might have a business that could assist an Auxiliary in a practical way
  • your professional network might respond well to social engagement ideas
  • stay-at-home parents and retirees might have some spare time and a desire for a new challenge
  • you could use your skills as a leader or influencer to inspire people and raise awareness of important fundraising projects that require support
  • your skills in administration, marketing, public relations etc. could offer invaluable support to an Auxiliary.

Whatever your skills, if you have a team attitude and a strong spirit of giving, your contribution will make a difference.
