Get involved

There are so many ways to get involved with COSMIC; we offer a huge range of fundraising challenges for individuals, companies and schools and will support you every step of the way.

As well as being able to fundraise we also need some proactive and friendly volunteers to help us with a range of activity throughout the year. From helping set up at events, collecting donations to baking cakes and wrapping Christmas presents, volunteering with us is never boring!

COSMIC also accept ‘gifts in kind’ such as toys, blankets, vouchers and baby and children’s clothes that we use on the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit to support children and families.
