Could you coordinate our presence at local markets and fetes?

Fundraising volunteer needed for Sue Ryder-Duchess of Kent Hospice

 

Help Sue Ryder provide incredible care to people living with the challenges of life-limiting conditions by coordinating our presence at local markets and fetes, helping maximise income and increase awareness of our vital work.

 

With support from the local fundraising team you will:

  • research new locations where Sue Ryder could boost community presence by having a stall
  • manage all admin associated with booking stalls
  • find suitable volunteer to help run stalls and ensure they have enough resources or run stall themselves where appropriate

We’ll need you to:

  • be friendly and approachable
  • have common sense
  • use your own initiative
  • have an organised and systematic approach

 

 

Previous retail experience would be beneficial but is not essential as all training and regular support will be provided.

This is a great opportunity to develop your experience in the competitive retail sector whilst making new friends.
