What we're looking for
We would like you to visit a variety of local shops, cafes, vets, pet shops, garden centres and other local attractions with a view to encouraging them to take an RSPB pin badge box and then revisit once a month to collect money and top up the badges for us. For this particular role we are looking at placing boxes on the outer areas of Inverness and/ or in the surrounding areas such as the Black Isle or Beauly areas, however we would be delighted with any suggestions you wish to make. 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? 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. 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 1 to 5 boxes in your chosen area. 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!
