We are looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to support the Fundraising Team with our fundraising activities.

Tasks within the fundraising can be wide and varied. Typical roles can include one or many of the following:

• Support the Fundraising Team with the events they are organising - your role may vary for each event; you could be greeting and registering participants, cheering on participants at challenge events, selling raffle tickets or Christmas cards, running a book/cake stall or tombola or serving refreshments, for example
• Help with admin – processing donations/information onto the fundraising database, photocopying, filing, writing letters, etc.
• Publicise fundraising events and activities within the local community by distributing posters, etc.
• Support collections and community fundraising events
• Pro-actively seek new opportunities to raise awareness and funds for Age UK Horsham District
• Thank donors/supporters

What skills do I need?

No formal experience is needed, as all necessary training will be given, but ideally you will:

• Be enthusiastic about helping a local charity to support local older people
• Be trustworthy and reliable
• Have excellent communication and team working skills
• Have the desire to find out more about the work of Age UK Horsham District
• Have flexibility and the willingness to volunteer
• Keep up-to-date with the work of Age UK Horsham District to represent the charity in a professional manner

We would appreciate any time you are able to offer.  If you are able to commit to regular hours (such as 2-3 hours per week/fortnight) we would be delighted to discuss ongoing projects that might interest you, including administrative support.

As it takes an amount of time and resource to welcome new volunteers on board, we would appreciate it if you pledged to support us initially for a minimum of 3 months.

What we can offer you:

• You will be given an induction and any necessary training for this role
• Members of the Fundraising Team will help and support you when volunteering
• You will be able to develop new and existing skills in areas such as fundraising, events, database and computer skills
• Fundraising is fun and rewarding and a great way of meeting new people
• You will be working as part of a dedicated and motivated team of volunteers
• You will have the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of local older people
• Volunteers can claim all reasonable and previously agreed expenses (such as for travel or reimbursement for items purchased)
