If you’d love to volunteer and you’re wanting to get stuck in, why not apply to be part of our fundraising events team! Our branch organises or has a presence at many events each year, and we are always looking for volunteers to help us!
Our fundraising events team are kept informed of any upcoming events that we are organising or attending, and can put themselves forward to help in any capacity – setting up or running our annual dog show, speaking to members of the public at a stand at our local Pets at Home or supermarket, assisting at a sponsored dog walk, bag packing at local shops, or any other activity we’re involved in. We are forming a real family in our fundraising events team, and you will always be supported by other experienced volunteers!
Fundraiser & Home Visitor
“I volunteer for the Lincs Mid branch in lots of different ways, from face painting at events to being a Home Visitor and making sure the cats and dogs find suitable new homes. I love being a part of the Lincs Mid team because I get to hear about incredible animal stories and see those animals go to really deserving homes.
It has never been a more important time to consider volunteering, with more and more animals in need of our help, there is definitely a role for everyone – particularly at events. I love being able to be part of huge events such as the dog show or the ball, just as much as our smaller events such as appearances at supermarkets – it’s so rewarding! If you would like a volunteer role that where you feels you can make a difference, get in touch with the branch today!”
You will need to be...
All that we ask is that if possible, you only put yourself down for events that you know you will be able to commit to. We are absolutely aware sometimes people are poorly, or that they are unable to attend at short notice, but this of course does cause problems in arranging cover for events.
The role not only provides a perfect opportunity to raise funds and help more animals, but it raises the publics’ awareness of the local Branch. Fundraising does not have to be ‘hard selling’ – much of it is about helping the branch to take advantage of sources of support/donations already on offer.
Take a look at our Events page to see what you could get involved with!
Please download and complete a general volunteer application form, and send your completed form to our office at firstname.lastname@example.org. At this point, our office will request your two references, and consider your application to become part of our fundraising events team. You will also need to arrange to provide a passport sized photograph for your ID badge – which you will need to wear when representing us at local events!
Once your positive references have come back, you will be sent a small training presentation to consider – this will go through helpful information not only regarding fundraising events, but also our branch to help you when representing our branch in the community. When you have completed that training, our Fundraising Events Coordinator will be in touch to arrange an informal chat to introduce the role and to go through any questions you may have regarding the training presentation. If you are happy following that chat, you will be added to our fundraising events team database where you will be notified of upcoming opportunities for which you can volunteer to attend!
