What will fundraising volunteers help with?

Being a fundraising volunteer is a fast paced, upbeat role which can change daily. Some of the things you may expect to be asked to help with would include:

  • Taking part in fundraising events such as bag packs and bucket collections
  • Forming cheer squads to help cheer participants at events such as runs and walks
  • Participation in event set up and de-rig where required
  • Taking on the role of our mascot, Buddy, at events

Additionally our fundraising team are always looking for talented photographers and videographers who would wish to donate their skills to capturing those special moments at events!

What skills are required for this role?

We want our volunteers to put the ‘fun’ into ‘fundraising’ and cheer Team AlzScot on at every opportunity, so a big smile and a positive attitude is a definite must!

As with all volunteering roles, there will be training where required and ongoing support from our Volunteer team. Full role descriptions will be available upon application.
