RADIO LOLLIPOP - Monash Children's Hospital
Radio Lollipop is a volunteer run international children’s charity providing care, comfort, play and entertainment to sick children in hospital. One of our key points of difference to many other charities is that we are entirely run by volunteers. Radio Lollipop engages the imagination of children to free them from the routine of the hospital environment by visiting them at their bedside with a range of craft activities, games and entertainment and inviting them to the studio and play area.
Radio Lollipop at the Monash Children’s Hospital is looking for new volunteers from a range of ages (must be 18+) and backgrounds, to join our team. Volunteers will be required to commit to at least one 3-hour shift per week. We operate Monday-Thursday nights from 5.30pm to 8.30 pm and Saturday and Sunday mornings from 9 am to 12 noon, and are currently searching for individuals for all of our shifts, in particular Monday-Thursday shifts. Volunteers will have the opportunity to run the radio show by announcing and producing, getting involved with play activities and creating arts + crafts. This is a privileged opportunity to help sick children smile and aid recovery by using laughter and play.
Our recruitment process begins with attendance at ONE of two information sessions held via Zoom conference. Sessions will run for approximately 1 hour. Session times are;
- Monday 12th September: 6:30pm-7:30pm
- Sunday 18th September: 10:00am-11:00am
