SSAFA Fundraising Volunteer

Could you help to raise vital funds for SSAFA in your local area? You don’t need a military background, just the ability to get on with all kinds of people and some occasional free time. What is a Fundraising volunteer? As part of a local team, our fundraisers represent SSAFA at events, and in public. The role includes helping at fayres, street collections, concerts, quizzes, raffles, sporting events etc. Why do we need you? SSAFA branches rely on regular charitable income to fund all the necessities behind our support for clients. This includes volunteer travel expenses, phone bills, publicity and grants for clients in urgent need. A varied programme of fundraising also keeps the SSAFA profile high in the local community, so everyone knows who we are and how we can help. Examples of tasks would include: • Being part of a team with collection/buckets tins at events, supermarkets, shopping centres, etc. • Acting as a marshal at a public event e.g. handing out water to runners, supervising parking etc. • Being part of a team running a stall at an event, Armed Forces Day, fayre, county show etc. • Helping with putting up posters, building gazebos, serving refreshments, packing/unpacking cars etc. • Being a positive ambassador for SSAFA, engaging people of all backgrounds and interests • Volunteering within the standards and values of SSAFA including observing our policies such as the Volunteering policy and data protection policy (these will be covered in your training and local induction.)


What are we looking for? • Friendly and approachable people • Confident people who feel happy to engage with the public, potential clients, volunteers and SSAFA colleagues face-to-face • Reliable attitude, keeping in touch the Fundraising Coordinator about your availability • Ability to maintain confidentiality and keep information safely • Access to public transport or a car to get to events • Able to provide two referees: former employers or other people that know you well (other than relatives)
