Fancy volunteering at Radio Lollipop, Royal Manchester Children's Hospital?

Radio Lollipop

Can you spare a few hours after work to volunteer at Radio Lollipop at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital?

Radio Lollipop is an international children's charity providing care, comfort, play and entertainment to children in hospital. As well as running a radio station, volunteers also go around the wards with games, crafts and competitions for the children.

Jo Wavish, a Chartered Building Surveyor at our Directorate of Estates and Facilities, says: “I started volunteering in January and would definitely recommend it; spending time with the children is really rewarding and great fun.”
