Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice – Volunteer Photographer


Details of the Charity:

Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice provides practical and emotional support to children who are life-limited or life threatened, and their families, living in North London.  We work within the boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington.

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

We are looking to develop a small team of Volunteer Photographers to attend various events, in order to provide us with images which can then be used to raise awareness of the work we do and the support we provide. The Volunteer Photographer will work in association with both our Fundraising Team and/or our Care Team, capturing images at a range of events from The Royal Parks Half Marathon, golf days, art exhibitions, and charity shop events to our Summer Ball, Winter Party and sibling groups. Photographs are also sent to families as a souvenir after an event.

 If you are interested in developing your experience and skills and would like to see your work published in the press, on the internet, in Noah’s Ark promotional literature, and on social media, this might be the role for you.

The photographs will become part of our image library. Noah’s Ark will own the copyright of the photos.
