What we're looking for

The RSPB is the country's largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home. We are quickly losing our birds, wildlife and natural places, and a recent RSPB report has found that seven out of eight children do not feel connected to nature, but together we can raise the urgent funding needed to save it. Community Fundraising is an exciting area where anyone can be involved. Together we can raise vital funding through volunteer networks, with local community groups, and the general public at local and national events. The RSPB charity pin badge box scheme can raise substantial unrestricted funds for nature conservation, but to grow this funding quickly and efficiently we need to work with Local Champions who help to raise funds and manage volunteers in their local area
