What we're looking for
Eastern England is an amazing place for wildlife. The variety of species and habitats is outstanding - but they are disappearing at an alarming rate. 10% of all UK species are now under threat. We're determined to stop this happening, but we urgently need your help. Our community fundraising volunteers through the pin badge scheme - are the local face of the RSPB. Last year, in Eastern England, the team raised more than £100,000 in donations from our pin badge and collection boxes, and almost £1 million nationally. Could you help us raise even more? When you join our team of over 150 volunteers, who are crucial to the running of our pin badge scheme, we will support you to place 5 - 10 boxes in your chosen area. We have a unique range of over 100 beautifully-designed, high-quality enamel badges depicting UK wildlife including birds, animals, flowers and insects. They are great to wear and very collectable to people of all ages. We ask for a suggested donation of £1 per badge. Each box must be visited every four weeks, at your convenience. Badges are replenished and donations counted on site. The money is then banked at your local Post Office or PayPoint location using a personalised PayPoint card supplied to you. You will then record the donations collected on your home PC, using our secure online database, and order any additional badges and stock required. This can all be done at a time that suits you. Simple!
