Market and Fair volunteers
“It’s great to support Viva! in a practical way – and you get to meet lots of fellow vegans. You also often have friendly chats with people toying with the idea of giving up dairy and animals in their diets; it’s very satisfying seeing them aligning themselves and saying they’re going to change – job done!” Dave
Become a Viva! Stall Vol and raise vital funds and awareness for our life-saving campaigns. Viva! as a charity, attends over 50 veggie, vegan, ethical and green events each year and we need your enthusiasm and compassion for animals to help us attend even more events in 2022.
You don’t need a background in sales or event management – we are looking for responsible, friendly like-minded people to represent our wonderful charity and sell a vegan chocolate bar or two!
I enjoy volunteering for Viva! at the vegan events because it gives me a chance to meet and speak to other vegans or people who are thinking of going vegan. It is always a positive experience. I also campaign for Viva! on the street stalls and whilst not everyone that you meet is vegan, or even thinking of going vegan, it is still great to go out and talk to the public. If you even put a spark of thought in people’s minds about the animals and their suffering, then it is worth it. Everyone has to start somewhere. – Sue
The Viva! events team will call for volunteers by email and social media 1-2 months before an upcoming event. If you like the idea of raising funds for our animal friends and promoting a veggie and vegan diet, get in touch now!
Our Viva! Stall Vol welcome pack includes a FREE We Make Vegan Happen Viva! tee for you (and your co-volunteer) to wear at the show. This is yours to keep from us to you! You’ll also receive: Information about the event you are attending, including itinerary, contacts and details about any special offers or event conditions that you will need to know about, a 15% Discount on stall merchandise and a special thank you in Viva!life magazine.
You must be able to transport 1-2 medium-sized boxes to and from the event! You must be able to unpack and set-up stall materials for a 6ft table and never leave the stall unsupervised! You must be able to arrange a money float (approximately £50)* with your own cash, which of course you keep at the end of the event. *We regret we cannot send a money float along with your stall contents, but we can provide you with a handy cash box! You must be able to count change during the event and count stock after the event!
If you want to be a Viva! Stall Vol and run a stall for us – drop us a line at email@example.com and tell us which event you’re interested in!
Once we have confirmed interest in the event, we will arrange for 1-2 stall boxes (including everything you need to set-up and display your stall) to be couriered to your address 1-2 weeks before the event. We arrange a collection of the remaining unsold merchandise on a day convenient to you. When you receive your Viva! Stall Vol pack, remember to do a quick scan of the contents just in case anything essential is missing! All information pertaining to the event (date, time, location) and your role will be sent to you via email and a printed copy included in the stall contents too. Instructions on how to set-up the stall and a handy photo of a previously set-up stall are included. An itemised stocksheet is included to help you count the stock sold after the event. This must be returned with any unsold merchandise. We encourage you to take photos of you and your friends running the Viva! Stall. We LOVE to see our vols in action and when we get the chance will share your photos and event successes on social media and in our tri-annual magazine Viva!life.
