Volunteering at Issy Geshen

Here are a few ideas!

  • Volunteer your time, talents or skills
  • If you're running a marathon or participating in a cycle race, make your achievement count for more by asking friends, family and business associates to sponsor you in aid of Issy Geshen Lamont Home.
  • Speak to us about registering the event on one of our fundraising platforms or on (GivenGain and Backabuddy), where you can easily set up a fundraising profile with Issy Geshen Lamont Home as the beneficiary. Your friends can sponsor you online – and leave a message of encouragement for you too. All the money you raise goes directly to us so you don't have to worry about handling cash or having to bank it.
  • On special occasions, like a birthday or anniversary, you could ask people to make a donation instead of buying you a birthday or anniversary gift. Or come up with your own fundraising event or idea, we are keen to hear your plan of support to the Home.
