Our Volunteer Fundraising Committee have remained dedicated to coming up with new ideas to raise funds to support our work through virtual events during the COVID-19 pandemic. The committee are currently meeting via online platforms to discuss and plan these events. We are always keen to recruit new volunteers to the committee to bring fresh ideas and an extra helping hand. We are still welcoming applications from volunteers who would like to join the committee.

Our fantastic Volunteer Fundraising Committee help to raise vital funds to deliver our services and support older people in Southwark. The committee meet four times a year on a weekday evening and come up with ideas for fun events and work together to plan and host them.

So far, we've planned everything from a wine tasting to a pub quiz, bridge competition and swing dance evening. If you enjoy being sociable and getting involved, we'd love to hear from you - and, if you have great ideas for fun, local fundraising activities, all the better!

This role could involve:
  • coming up with fun activities and events to raise funds
  • getting together with other volunteers to plan and host events
  • spreading the word about our events and the work of Link Age Southwark - via social media, poster or any other way you like
  • baking cakes, making handicrafts and much more to sell at events
  • ... and anything else you might like to suggest!

"I enjoy knowing that in some way I have helped to improve someone's life. It may be small or indirect sometimes but there is great satisfaction in raising funds for a charity so that they can continue to do their fantastic work."

This role requires:
  • a cheerful and friendly personality
  • attendance at a volunteer induction
  • completion of a basic Disclosure Barring Service and character reference check
  • a commitment to working within the policies of Link Age Southwark

We cover all reasonable expenses and we are happy to provide references for volunteers who have completed 6 months of volunteering with us.
