What we're looking for
We are looking for volunteers to help us manage our pin badge boxes that are currently placed in businesses in the Aviemore, Grantown, Kingussie and Newtonmore areas of the Highlands and potentially place and manage more boxes for us too although this can be optional. The Highlands of Scotland 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 are the local face of the RSPB. Last year, in Scotland, the team raised an incredible £225,000 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 1,500 volunteers, who are crucial to the running of our pin badge scheme, we will support you to place maintain our current boxes in the Speyside area namely Grantown on Spey and Aviemore. To ensure we follow charity fundraising regulations, the donations from your boxes will need banking every 4-6 weeks, and the pin badges will need topping up. You will then report the income on our user friendly online system and place an order for any additional stock you may need. This can all be done at a time that suits you. Simple!
