Community Fundraising Help

  • VO76995


Description

We have the opportunity to raise much needed funds for our charitable work with children, through bag-packing at ASDA. This is a great chance for volunteers to try out fundraising and help a local charity.

For four hours one afternoon you will offer to pack bags for ASDA customers, as part of a team covering several till-points. You will stand at one till-point and will be responsible for a donations tin that customers can pop some change into, to thank you for the bag-packing. These funds will support Play Midlothian’s services for children and families. If you’d like to find out more about the services these funds will support, please visit www.playmidlothian.org.uk. Only four hours of your time could raise hundreds of ponds for charity. You will receive guidance on your role. Someone from Play Midlothian will be there at the start, to welcome you and handover your tin, and at the end to thank you and collect the tin. Your support will be much appreciated!
