There are so many ways that you can support OpenStoryTellers, including: donating, becoming a Friend, fundraising, volunteering, selling our products, renting our rooms for parties or meetings
Our Friends are very special people. Becoming a Friend and making a monthly donation to OpenStoryTellers is invaluable to the creative and supportive fabric of our charity.
Your support provides vital funds for people who do not receive any social care funding as a result of drastic government spending cuts. Our Friends make a very real difference to people's lives.
To find out more, and become a Friend, please head to our Local Giving page.
Our volunteers are an invaluable part of OpenStoryTellers' team and we are very thankful for them.
Opportunities can include working with members on projects, lending a hand in the office, community fundraising or helping out at events.
We post opportunities on our 'News' page, do keep an eye out there!
We have had some amazing people doing some amazing fundraising activities for us over the years. Including: cycling 200 miles a day, running the SW Coast Path, shaving their head, walking across hot coals!
If you have an idea and you'd like to fundraise for a great cause, we'd love to hear from you!
Every year we enter a team into the Frome 5K - do get in touch if you'd like to run with us.
