The Friends of Staunton Country Park group are looking for a Volunteer Fundraiser to help them to apply for grants and to raise funds for identified projects. These projects seek to educate the public about the park’s history and draw attention to the diversity of flora and fauna present in the Park.

It is an exciting time for Staunton Country Park, which has been awarded a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant to restore Staunton’s Regency heritage, enhance community facilities for visitors and to increase the volunteer offer.

  • The promotion of the Friends of Staunton Country Park group to increase interest in the aims and objectives of the group (in conjunction with the Media Coordinator and committee)
  • To increase membership to Friends of Staunton Country Park (in conjunction with the Media Coordinator and committee)


Skills and knowledge:

The role would suit someone with previous experience/interest in working with community groups or charities.  Good interpersonal skills would be advantageous, as the role will involve working alongside other volunteers, with occasional direct contact with stakeholders and members of the public.

The volunteer would also need be confident in attending virtual meetings, undertaking research using the internet, and able to complete online or written applications, as this would be a key part of the role.
