Volunteers

The Wimbledon Guild Village Fair is a large, annual, community event on picturesque Wimbledon Common. It is in aid of, and organised by, Wimbledon Guild, a local charity working throughout the London Borough of Merton. We provide practical help for people in crisis including: hardship grants, outreach, talking therapies, befriending, a bereavement service and activities for older people.

To help with the smooth running of the event, Wimbledon Guild relies on expanding its team of fun, good humoured and hard-working volunteers.
