Make friends, learn new skills and have fun!

Fundraising volunteers needed for DEBRA in RG1

DEBRA’s Fundraising Team provides fantastic opportunities for volunteers to contribute to the fight against the genetic skin blistering condition Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). You will make friends, learn new skills and have fun.

As a Fundraising Volunteer you will have the opportunity to work within a team and assist with a number of activities being rolled out over the course of the year.

In particular, we are looking for Volunteers to assist us at The Oracle in Reading where we are Charity of the Year. We will be hosting a range of events at the centre, including a press launch and cycle challenge (in June), school choir/drama performances, an autumn photography competition, Christmas wrapping and carol singing. We will need people to help with the raffles, challenges, competitions, children’s activities and bucket collections.
