Sheffield Volunteering

Sheffield Volunteering logo

Volunteering projects in schools and the local community, which are led by students. Get involved!

Share Your Volunteer Experience! - Blog or Video

This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

OPEN TO ALL VOLUNTEERS AND FUNDRAISERS! We don't think that we shout enough about all the great volunteering that you do so we'd like to share all your positive stories! We have already shared loads of #ShefVolStories this year, but would love to share more on our blog and social media... Have you volunteered with a Sheffield Volunteering project, in a local school, on a Give It A Go, or with an external charitable organisation? Or have you fundraised through RAG/ Bummit? We want to celebrate your engagement in local communities so share your experience with us so we can showcase your experience, and encourage others to get involved! You could write a blog piece or submit a short video.

We don't think that we shout enough about all the great volunteering that you do so we'd like to share all your positive stories! We have already shared loads of #ShefVolStories this year, but would love to share more on our blog and social media.

Here are some ideas for what you could write about or speak about in a video clip (but don't feel like you have to use these!)
- Name of the project or activity and who it is with
- How does the project or activity benefit the community
- What did you and other volunteers do, and what did you gain from the project
- Something outstanding/funny that happened
- Why others should get involved in volunteering or fundraising

Send your blog to volunteering@sheffield.ac.uk and include a related, suitable image (that has permissions to be used on a public website). 

The video can be filmed on a phone (landscape and hold camera still), or using more advanced equipment if you want. Send us your videos, or upload them onto Google Drive and share them with us. volunteering@sheffield.ac.uk

These are just guidelines so feel free to submit something else that describes your experience in a different way!
