About Capital Sci Fi Con

Love Sci-Fi? Bit of a pop culture nut? We’re rounding up volunteers for Capital Sci-Fi Con 2020 (14, 15 and 16 February 2020) at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange.

The convention features everything from prop displays, movie guests, gaming zones, live entertainment and the famous cosplay competition! Over the last four years, Capital Sci-Fi Con has raised over £250,000 for the children and families who need us.

We need over 100 volunteers over the three days to help us make 2020 the best convention yet! Can you be one of them?

Volunteer Roles

  • Silent Auction Stall - You will be promoting the silent auction prizes to attendees, helping people to place bids using our electronic system and explaining the impact that the money raised by the raffle will have for CHAS.
  • Raffle Stall - Working in pairs you will sell tickets for the CHAS Raffle. We always have a variety of hampers on offer ranging from Star Wars to My Little Pony to Marvel. The raffle is drawn daily and is very popular.
  • Cloakroom - Volunteers are required to look after the very busy cloakroom.
  • Set up and take down - Unfortunately we can’t wave our wands and pack everything up so we need dedicated volunteers to help us set up on the Thursday and pack everything away on the Sunday.

About CHAS (Children's Hospices Across Scotland)

We’re Children’s Hospices Across Scotland. But most people know us as CHAS. For over twenty years we’ve been offering a full family support service for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions. This includes palliative care, family respite and support – through our hospices, homecare services and hospital presence.
