Guide Dogs Scotland (Shetland)

Charity registered in Scotland SC038979

We will deliver a world class guide dog service as part of a range of mobility services, and work to break down barriers to ensure people who are blind and partially sighted can get out and about on their own terms.

Current opportunities

You will have the chance to take part in some or all of the following: Street Collections on 'flag' days / Help on stalls at local events / Take collection boxes to local businesses / Attending local events organised by Branches or Community Fundraiser and keeping track of what we sell on our stalls (including cuddly toys) / Count donations / Fundraisers are usually members of the local fundraising group.

Identify and place collecting boxes in suitable locations. Talk to shop owner etc at location about how the boxes will help Guide Dogs and what we do. Empty boxes every 3-6months and bank the income through the payin book provided, give a receipt and letter of thanks to the hosts. Keep a written record of the location of all boxes for your supervisor, dates they are emptied and the dates/amount banked. If boxes aren't collecting much then move to a better location (your supervisor may ask you to do this). Report any stolen boxes. Spot the potential for further fundraising amongst the box holders for community fundraising.
