Management / Business volunteer needed for Reading Family Aid

Each year Reading Family Aid organises the huge Toys and Teens Appeal.   We collect and redistribute new or as new toys, suitable for ages 0 – 16, to disadvantaged families at Christmas.

The Appeal takes place from mid-October to early December but the work needs to start in late August to meet publication deadlines.

We also organise outings and fundraising events throughout the year.

In order for us to be successful, we need to publicise what we are doing through the Reading Chronicle, our website and social media.

We are looking for someone:

  • to provide content for the Reading Chronicle and other local community publications
  • to keep our website up to date
  • to publicise our work on social media

You must have the time and the drive to make the public aware of our work in the wider Reading area and be comfortable writing publication, website and social media content and making updates to the website content and Facebook as necessary
