Fundraising & Event Volunteer

Our events and fundraising efforts underpin everything we do to raise awareness of our vital services to support older people and their families as well as raising funds to sustain it.

Fundraising & Event volunteers will:

  • Support the organisation with the events they are holding in the community by helping to set up at the start of the event.
  • Help to run the event on the day.
  • Meet and greet people to give more information about our services.

There is a lot of variety in the events we hold and take part in so you will not get bored. Each event will vary depending on what it is but other tasks might include helping with food and beverages, being a point of liaison for guests at an event, or running an activity on a stand at a community event.

What is it in for you?

  • Becoming part of a friendly and dedicated team
  • Volunteering in your local community for a local independent charity
  • Meeting people and making new friends
  • Improving your communication skills
  • Enjoying new experiences

What else ...

  • We’re always happy to provide references to people who support us, so it’s something extra which you can add to your CV afterward.
  • You get training and gain experience in a variety of different roles (you may choose from several different roles on offer).
  • You get the satisfaction of having helped the convention out. Volunteering is also a very easy way to get to know other members of the community, and there is usually a lot of camaraderie between fellow volunteers and staff over the course of the event.

Skills

To be a Fundraising & Event volunteer you will need to be:

  • Enthusiastic
  • Friendly
  • Happy to travel in your local community
  • An excellent communicator and have good interpersonal skills

This role will suit people who have a friendly and enthusiastic manner and enjoy working with older people, carers and families in particular. This role can sometimes be physically demanding and you may be on your feet all day.

Activities:

  • Helping to prepare for the event – this might involve preparing craft activities, information and signage, setting up trails, displays and activities, moving tables and chairs, putting up gazebos and so on.
  • Providing a warm, friendly welcome to all visitors as the public face of Age Concern Hampshire, answering any questions and encouraging people to get involved in the events/activities.
  • Assisting at events such as the Great British Garden Parties – this might involve directing visitors, providing information, running stalls, assisting with activities, ticket selling and cash handling.
  • Overseeing family activities – this might involve handing out prizes, supervising and assisting with games etc.

Fundraising events can take place any day of the week but we anticipate that most of them will be evenings and weekends. As the length of each event can vary there will be options to do time slots for longer events so that you would not have to commit to all day. Age Concern Hampshire covers the whole of Hampshire so events could be anywhere across the county but there will be a number of events being held at our head office in Locks Heath and at our Horrill Centre in Dibden, which require support from fundraising volunteers.
