Guide Dogs seek Skipton fundraising group organiser
8:00am Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
Guide Dogs is keen to recruit a volunteer fundraising group organiser to run the Skipton branch.
Although fairly new, the branch already has an active membership and the group organiser would coordinate and organise events to raise money for blind and partially sighted people.
Community fundraiser Lily Prestwood said: “We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with good communication and team working skills.”
Ongoing training and advice will be given.
The branch also needs collection box coordinators, who will be responsible for placing boxes in local shops and businesses, and collecting and tallying up the funds every two or three months. The iconic yellow labrador boxes play a vital part in raising funds for the £5 a day it costs to support each guide dog partnership.
Anyone interested should email Lily.Prestwood@guidedogs.org.uk or call Guide Dogs volunteering department on 0845 371 7771.
