Fundraising Volunteers

A bit about this role

 

As a charity we can continue to help cats and kittens in need thanks to the donations we receive at fundraising events from generous members of the public. Our events fundraisers have the exciting and varied role of helping plan and deliver local fundraising events. They support a team of fundraising volunteers who come together to raise the vital funds needed to help our feline friends in need. They use their passion for cats and people to plan cakes sales, barn dances, quiz nights – and everything in between!

What are the benefits to you and the cats?

 

You will develop new skills, expand your knowledge and make a significant contribution to improving the lives of cats and kittens by helping raise funds through fundraising events. You will also meet new people, make new friends and be part of a dedicated team of volunteers.

  • Good organisational skills

  • Strong interpersonal and people management skills
