Catering volunteer


How you can get involved


Join the friendly Catering team at our hospice in Eltham and help prepare delicious and nutritious meals for the children and their loved ones.

We especially need volunteers on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

There is nothing more inviting than enjoying a family meal together around the dining table. Your help could make such a big difference to provide something that many of us take for granted each day.

An enjoyment and knowledge of food would be absolutely invaluable; however training will be given to all volunteers to support and guide you each step of the way.


What will you gain from volunteering

  • A chance to meet new people, make new friends and dedicate yourself to a rewarding role
  • The time to develop new skills, take on new challenges and enjoy new experiences
  • The opportunity to make an invaluable contribution to Demelza and support children with serious and terminal conditions and their loved ones


Why volunteer for Demelza


Demelza provides specialist care and emotional support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, completely free of charge to those who are in need throughout Kent, South East London and East Sussex. We help with every element of life for children with serious and terminal conditions. We get to know each and every child, young person and family we work with to ensure they receive a care plan as unique as they are.


Demelza could not achieve this high quality service without the volunteers who give their time, energy and dedication. Over 1,000 volunteers give their time across all areas of the charity and we would be incredibly grateful for you to join our team of volunteers. Together with your support, we will be there to bring joy, fun and relaxation to the lives of every child and family that needs our help.
