Our fantastic Fundraising Committee volunteers 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.
