Volunteer Fundraiser (Pin Badges) Fife

  • VO88342


Description

RSPB is the largest nature conservation charity in Europe and they are looking for Volunteer Fundraisers in Fife to raise money for RSPB Scotland through their pin badge scheme. They will support you to place pin badge boxes in your chosen venue, which can be anything from shops, to garden centres, tourist attractions and pubs. Once a box has been placed, to ensure we follow charity fundraising regulations, the boxes must be visited and the money from them banked at least once a month. You will then report the income on our user-friendly online system and place an order for any additional stock you may need. Simple!

One great aspect of this volunteering role is its flexibility and it can be easily done at a time and location that suits you best, usually it takes only 2 hours a month! It is a really important and rewarding role, a volunteer can raise thousands of pounds a year to support our conservation projects just by managing a few pin badge boxes!
