Lifetime’s Care4me Volunteering Opportunity of the Week

Each week Lifetimes chooses one of our current volunteering opportunities listed on our community directory and volunteer brokerage platform, Care4me, as our ‘Volunteering Opportunity of the Week’. 

This week the Volunteering Opportunity is for The OSO Arts Centre, a small theatre & arts venue in Barnes. They are looking for Box Office Volunteer to help them in the evenings (before shows) and in the daytime. Depending on interest they also have volunteers who help with tech, admin, marketing and operations. The daytime box office shifts involve greeting and public and engaging them in OSO's programme, taking ticket bookings, answering the phone, as well as taking on any small projects that might interest you in particular. The evening box office shifts involve ticking off audience members as they arrive, selling tickets and then sitting in on the performance. Full fire procedure and box office training will be given in advance. You get free tea and coffee whilst on your shift, and get to see the shows you work for free. You can also get discount tickets for their theatre on nights you aren't working.

If you would like to find out more information or enquire about this role you can do so by visiting and clicking on our ‘Volunteering Opportunities Button’. 

If you would like one of your opportunities to be ‘Volunteering Opportunity of the Week’ then please get in touch at and we can guide you through the process of setting up your Care4me profile.


 Lifetimes' volunteer brokerage platform, part of our community directory,

Using the volunteering button on the site, all organisations registered with Care4Me can  promote their volunteering opportunities. Any individual with an interest in volunteering can also sign up on the site, with a brief profile of their skills they wish to share and areas of work they are interested in.

The brokerage platform is entirely self-funded by Lifetimes, who work to empower and support the voluntary sector in Wandsworth, Richmond, Kingston and the surrounding boroughs. This development was made to assist organisations who will experience difficulties gaining volunteers as the Local Authority no longer supports volunteer brokerage via funding of the service.

To list your organisation’s volunteering opportunities, simply register your organisation or log in at to register your opportunity.

If you are an individual looking to volunteer, you can search our volunteering opportunities or register to create your profile on the volunteer bank here
