Volunteering at Coventry Open Christmas
How you can help Interested in making a real difference this Christmas to those who really need it?

Are you a kind, caring and fun individual looking for a way to enrich the lives of others less fortunate than yourself this Christmas? Not quite sure where the best place to do to this is?

Then look no further as Coventry Open Christmas shelter needs you. Without the dedication and selfless acts of our countless volunteers over the last two decades we wouldn’t have been able to provide the level of service we have and this year is no different.

Giving a little or a lot is a great way to get to get involved but the real difference is made by our volunteers’ and that’s why we need you.

Get involved Over the course of 5 days we will provide over 600 meals and serve over 3,000 cups of tea and coffee.

We will also provide countless gifts of clothes, sleeping bags, food and toiletries while ensuring that the shelter is kept clean and tidy throughout.

This is a tall order and that is why we need the backbone of our service to come from our volunteers. Without this vital ingredient we would never be able to provide our service at Christmas.

Really make a difference this Christmas and join a team who is as passionate about helping others as you are. To find out how to get involved please contact us.

Volunteering Times

We need volunteers for these time slots. If you would like to get involved and help please contact us and request a volunteer form stating which times you are available for.

Christmas Day is our quietest day as there are some fantastic organisation across the city providing Christmas Dinner, many of our guests leave for these events early int he morning and arrive back later at night.

Times that are struck through means that we have filled all of our volunteer slots.
