Skills and experience:

  • Enthusiastic and pro-active
  • Good IT skills (depending on project)

How this helps us:

It costs us around £80 per day to remain open and continue looking after cats in our care. To help us raise much needed finance, and promote our work in the local community, we raise funds in a number of ways. We are looking to build a team of volunteer fundraisers who can work individually or together to raise funds and ensure our continued financial survival.

What does this role involve?

  • Working with other volunteers at events (eg carboots, tombolas, pub quizzes, table top sales)
  • Working with other volunteers on the organisation of fundraising events.
  • Researching and preparing grant applications.
  • Attending fundraising events as a representative of the charity

At the moment, we are looking specifically for someone to manage our new ‘sponsor a cat cabin’ project if that is something that might, hopefully, appeal to you.

Time commitment required?

Ad-hoc according to our fundraising programme and your availability. Importantly, we ask that if you offer to help, you keep to your commitment to avoid repeated replanning.

Age Requirements

We are sorry but, because of our safeguarding policies, we are unable to accept offers of hands-on help from under 18s

How will we support you?

Your contact will be the event’s team leader who will give you information, guidance and direction. They support you and offer help as necessary.

What you can gain from volunteering with us?

  • New experiences and knowledge
  • Satisfaction from using your existing knowledge and skills to help cats in our care
  • Meeting and working with new people
  • Develop existing skills and gain new skills

Please let us have a few more of your details. Obviously, the information you give is just a starting point since we want to make sure any time and effort you volunteer are rewarding to you as well as the cats we are trying to help: Online Volunteer Registration
