Role description

Fundraising has a huge variety of activities to participate in so by joining this team you will be meeting new people and playing an important role in raising the funds needed to support our services. Activities include helping with bag packs, manning our stall at a village fair or run a raffle at one of our events. As a fundraising volunteer you will be on the front line, representing the charity to members of the public and giving out information about our services. 

Fundraising volunteers help us by raising awareness of the charity across the region, act as goodwill ambassadors in raising our profile and support us to make the most from the events that we’re able to attend.

Occasional volunteering is on an ad-hoc basis so there is no requirement to make a regular commitment. Hours will vary depending on the event.

We are looking for volunteers who are reliable and adaptable to support a variety of activities throughout the year. Having your own transport is helpful but not essential. Having your own transport is helpful but not essential.  What is essential is being a team player and having a sense of humour!

Some of the events you could be assisting us with are:

The Great North Run, Ponteland Wheelbarrow Race, Charity bag packs at supermarkets and more

As an occasional volunteer, you’ll be placed in a group of similar minded people who you can connect and bond with, making friends and engaging with the local community. Due to the type of events that we take part in there are opportunities to boost confidence and self-assurance by following experienced and friendly members of staff or volunteers that can help you to try something new and meet new people.

Participating in occasional volunteering can help develop skills and experience in the charity sector and provide great knowledge for furthering yourself within fundraising. If you are looking towards or thinking about working in fundraising then this is an excellent opportunity to get some first-hand experience.
