What we're looking for

Could you help us put the Fun back into Fundraising? Our fantastic RSPB Local Groups make a valuable contribution to the organisations income annually. This income supports habitat maintenance on local nature reserves, and funds ambitious conservation projects across the East of England region. The Norwich RSPB Local Group are looking for an enthusiastic individual to plan and organise fundraising events for the RSPB. You will be responsible for arranging and coordinating street collections. There are also opportunities to organise raffles at group meetings and negotiate local sponsorship for events, ensuring (with the Treasurer) that any money raised is properly accounted for and banked promptly. This is a brilliant opportunity to get creative, and take the lead in some exciting fundraising events of your own design, along with the usual activities of organising stalls at local stores and events. You will have the support of other volunteers in the Norwich Local Group committee too.
