Just regarding the above ‘start date / end date’ question, we feel that the opportunity can be done over a couple of months, one day per week, to start with. The volunteer is required to help us deliver a big project is to raise money through our ongoing initiative which is called #Skibay4DSUK #SkiBay4DSUK is calling on skiers and snowboarders throughout the UK to sell their unwanted winter equipment and items of clothing to help raise money for DSUK to continue providing our adaptive snowsport activities. Through this volunteer opportunity, you will help disabled people to be more active, make friends and have fun by taking part in snowsport. “It's more than skiing and snowboarding: It's life changing.” To support this initiative, we currently require volunteers to help us photograph and write descriptions of items we have stored at our offices near Aviemore. We have had lots of donations of unwanted snowsport equipment and we need to list these items on our own eBay shop. The purpose of this is to raise money from these items but also promote the #Skibay4DSUK initiative and encourage people all over the country to sell their unwanted items to raise money for us. The role will also involve weighing items and researching and preparing other information about the items as necessary. Our member of staff, Bonnie, will actually list the items on eBay so the volunteer doesn’t need to worry about being able to use eBay as such.

Volunteers are carefully matched with a Sported membership club within their locality, who they then support on a one-to-one basis to help them to tract investment into their organisation. Sported support groups who are utilising sport to bring about real social difference throughout the UK so you'll be paired with a group that are doing really inspiring work. These groups are doing incredible work but require some guidance around fundraising in order to make them more sustainable and increase their capacity. This is a great opportunity to make an impact on a community group in your area. If you enjoy working with people and have a desire to make a difference, and most importantly, have fun then please do get in touch. Code: CRV
