LOC: Flexible
PAY: Expenses covered, appropriate training provided
FOR: RSPB

Community fundraising is crucial for the RSPB, as it allows us to continue the work we do to protect UK’s natural habitats and our unique wildlife. Our “pin badge scheme” is one of our most successful fundraising initiatives, thanks to our almost 1,500 committed pin badge volunteers across the UK. A volunteer can raise thousands of pounds a year to support our conservation projects just by managing a few pin badge boxes! Being the local face of the RSPB, you will be helping us develop our fundraising capacity by placing and maintaining 1 to 5 pin badge boxes in your chosen area. Volunteers are required to visit their box(es) every 4 to weeks to top up the pin badges and bank the money. You then have to simply log that income on our user friendly online system and order more pin badge stock. The role is suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities and can take as little as one hour a month. If you would like to know more about becoming a pin badge volunteer, or if you’d like to host a pin badge box, please email communityfundraisingscotland@rspb.org.uk.
