Guide Dogs Preston are on the hunt for volunteers to help fill two essential roles within their Fundraising Group Team.Advertisement
The charity works to support blind and partially sighted people, providing both mobility and freedom to those who are in need of it, and help to raise money for the two million people in the UK that are living with sight loss.
They are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers to fulfil the Fundraising Group Coordinator and the Trading Secretary (merchandise) roles.
Volunteering consultant with Guide Dogs Janet Harper said: “The roles are an exciting opportunity to be the key contacts for fundraising in the Preston area and lead a local fundraising group to raise money for blind and partially sighted people.”
The Fundraising Group Coordinator role will involve helping with the coordination of a group of like-minded people with an aim of raising money through events or other activities.
