Fundraising and Events Volunteer

Details Hide[-]

Why we need you

As a Fundraising and Events volunteer, your support will be vital in helping us to deliver our fundraising activities and events to raise much needed funds for Leeds Weekend Care Association. Not only will you support events being organised by LWCA, you will also have the opportunity to pitch your own event and campaign ideas. This role is flexible and we will collaborate with you to make it work for you!

What you’ll be doing

  • Volunteering at events organised by LWCA
  • Creating proposals for new events and fundraising campaigns
  • Organising your own mini-fundraisers, such as bake sales and collections
  • Support with placing collection tins in local businesses

This list is not exhaustive – your volunteering experience will be shaped by your ideas!

What we’re looking for

  • Someone who is enthusiastic and creative
  • Someone who is friendly and has good interpersonal skills
  • Someone with good time management and organisation skills
  • Good numerical skills and ability to handle cash confidently

What you’ll get out of volunteering with LWCA

  • Fundraising and events experience at a local charity
  • Developing organisation and cash handling skills
  • Building confidence and communication skills
  • Opportunities to pitch your own ideas!

How much time do I need to commit?

This is a flexible role and how much time you can commit is up to you and your personal circumstances. We would ideally like you to be available to help out at our events and organise a minimum of four mini fundraisers per year. As this role will mostly be remote, consistent communication with the Community Fundraising Manager is a must. You will be supported by the CFM and, as our fundraising volunteer group grows, we will arrange volunteer meet ups.
