Macmillan has an exciting opportunity to create a brand new Fundraising Group in Midlothian to raise vital funds and awareness so that we can support more people affected by cancer when they need us most!
There is no pressure, and you can give as much or as little time as you like! Fundraising is a great opportunity to be social and have fun, while making a great difference to people affected by cancer.
Join our new Group, and invite your friends to find out more information!
We would love to see you there!
We are looking for people to help lead and inspire our Macmillan Action Team volunteers at events across the Edinburgh area.
Coordinate and organise volunteers to take part in local activities like cheering at events or bucket collections.
Support, inspire, lead and motivate volunteers on the day so they have an excellent volunteering experience.
Count and bank cash collected, if applicable.
Signpost people to Macmillan’s website or helpline number for support.
Action Team Volunteers are central to Macmillan's fundraising and awareness raising. Join our friendly UK-wide team of volunteers to make a difference and help Macmillan reach more people living with cancer. This is a varied, family friendly and fun way to get involved as part of Team Macmillan.
You’ll provide support when you can, depending on
activities taking place in your local area, which could
• Marshall, cheer, collect money or provide practical
support in other ways at our events - from walks to
marathons, cycles, swims and race days. Other
locations may be festivals/gigs, special events,
fetes, and balls
• Support Macmillan locally by spreading the word
through campaigning, in-office support, putting up
posters, and using your social media accounts
• Other ad-hoc activities may arise on the day
What will you get out of it?
• Use your communication and influencing skills to
talk about what Macmillan provides
• Develop your listening and empathising skills
• Be a part of a friendly team that makes a difference in the community
• Receive a briefing and support on the day, and pre-agreed out-of-pocket expenses
reimbursed within our guidelines
