Fundraising/Business Development Volunteer needed – flexible hours by arrangement

Would you like to volunteer in a friendly office in Padstow Harbour supporting the fundraising team for The National Lobster Hatchery, a pioneering marine charity with a focus on conservation, education and research? Do you have basic office skills including using Word (and Excel preferably)? We particularly need help with following up our contacts by phone but if this is not where your talents lie we can offer support and training or alternative tasks as we have more than enough work to go round! We need to contact both Charitable Trusts and individual givers in the next few months to maximise our income to deliver our projects.

A typical day might include:–
• Researching leads for fundraising using trustfunding.org
• Helping us to maximise our donations to keep the charity running by keeping our systems recording contacts up to date and compliant with the new GDPR rules
• Helping us with our corporate membership scheme and high value givers
• Assisting with occasional fundraising events

We offer a Volunteer Welcome pack with Handbook to help you settle in – this gives details such as how to claim expenses and how we can work together to support the charity’s objectives.

For further information, please contact Suzanne or Clare on 01841-533877 and ask for the Fundraising Team.
