Ways to get involved
UKELA is a charity and most of our funding comes from membership subscriptions, sponsorship and events income. We are also fortunate to have a band of committed volunteers, without whom we would not be able to function. There is always more to be done and that's where you might be able to help. Take a look at ways you can become involved below. Thank you.
We actively welcome volunteers to join us - there are lots of opportunities. Our trustees are all volunteers from our membership, as are our Working Party, Regional Group and Devolved Administration convenors. We also have student volunteers who help in a number of ways, including supporting the work of our Working Parties and acting as advisors to Council. If you have would like to volunteer or have an idea about a new voluntary position please do contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
Sponsorship and Fundraising
The main opportunity for sponsorship is at our Annual Conferences. If you are interested in sponsoring any aspect of our Annual Conference, please contact us. If you have an idea for other types of sponsorship we would love to hear from you. We hold fundraising events from time to time. Keep an eye on our social media for what's coming up.
Every year an intrepid band of cyclists made up of our members undertakes a light-hearted cycling challenge. This is usually around the time of the annual conference. The 'Recyclists' are always on the lookout for new members and it's a great way to get to know other members. have fun whilst keeping fit and reduce your carbon footprint!
