Job Description

Fundraising Volunteer - Occasional

Role Summary:

Fundraising has a huge variety of activities to participate in so joining this team will mean meeting new people and playing an important role in raising the funds needed to support our services. From event marshalling and running fundraising stalls at Tynedale Hospice at Home events, to collecting money at supermarkets or fundraising and raising awareness in the community.

Get inspired by checking out our full range of events or contact fundraising@tynedalehospice.com

Hours:

Occasional volunteering is on an ad-hoc basis so there is no requirement to make a regular commitment. Hours will vary depending on the event. 

Location:

This depends on the activity but could be anywhere in West Northumberland. Some examples of past events include bag packs at Hexham supermarkets and the wheelbarrow race in Ponteland.

Who We Are Looking For:

We are looking for volunteers who are reliable and adaptable to support a variety of activities throughout the year. Having your own transport is helpful but not essential. 

Training and Support:

You will be supported by our fundraising team, both staff and existing volunteers. As each event is different we will provide all necessary information and guidance in advance or on the day of events so that you remain safe, informed and aware of what is required.

Benefits of Volunteering:

As an occasional volunteer, you’ll be placed in a group of similar minded people who you can connect and bond with, making friends and engaging with the local community.

Due to the type of events that we take part in there are opportunities to boost confidence and self-assurance by following experienced and friendly members of staff or volunteers that can help you to try something new and meet new people.

Participating in occasional volunteering can help develop skills and experience in the charity sector and provide great knowledge for furthering yourself within fundraising. If you are looking towards or thinking about working in fundraising then this is an excellent opportunity to get some first-hand experience.
