Event planning for community crowd-funding project

  • VO62599


Description

It's a really simple concept: people pay £5 to come along to an evening of live music and soup, listen to four or five pitches from local people who have an idea/ project to make Stirling a better place to live, and vote on their favourite. At the end of the night, the winner takes away all of the door money to invest in their project (and returns to a future event to update us all on its progress). We're looking for volunteers to help us plan and co-ordinate the event, arrange marketing, publicity and PR, and liaise with venues, supporters and local causes. Closer to the first event, there will also be more time-limited volunteer roles in preparing and serving food and helping out at the events themselves.
