The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace is always on the look out for more volunteers. Volunteering involves enthusiasm, commitment and hard work, but by working alongside our dedicated team of volunteers, you will have fun, while making memories and friendships that will last forever.

We are now hosting conferences, training seminars, and other events for local voluntary organisations, and we are looking to increase our pool of volunteers to help us manage and run these events smoothly. Tasks will vary, ranging from reception duties to serving refreshments and assisting our catering team. If you have the odd day or two to spare, and wondered how you could make a positive contribution to your local community, please get in touch with us.

If you would like to register your interest in volunteering for the Foundation for Peace, or simply would like more information, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

What’s so good about volunteering for us?

Janet

“As a self-employed business woman working from home, I moved to Warrington with my husband’s work four years ago. After three years I realised that I had no friends in the local area and could not say I knew anyone in Warrington.

“Having attended the 20th anniversary memorial service in the town centre in 2013, I joined the Foundation as a volunteer in May 2013.  Since then I have made friends in the town, become far more sociable and gained new skills and qualifications in catering.

“My voluntary work involves catering and hospitality as well as behind-the-scenes administrative duties on an ad-hoc basis. Each session is different and rewarding as well as fun and entertaining. It provides much needed social interaction and has increased my self-confidence.

“I would recommend volunteering with the Foundation to anyone who wants to make new friends or learn new skills or even put existing skills to good use.”

“I became involved with the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace ten years ago as a volunteer. I look forward to working with the lovely, very friendly staff who are always so thankful for the help of their volunteers. It’s a way of meeting people. You can help in the cyber cafe, in the reception area, when  conferences such as making tea and coffee or help in the kitchen during school holidays when the youth club hosts its holiday club.

“It’s always a special time at Christmas as we have so much fun. The Peace Centre turns into Santa’s Grotto and leading up to that we spend time wrapping Christmas presents for Santa to give out to the children.

“There are so many ways volunteers can help and you may come up with new ideas for bringing in donations to help keep the Peace Centre open. The Foundation does very important work and I get so much satisfaction knowing I’m helping in some small way. Colin and Wendy Parry are wonderful people. Come and join us.”
