The RNLI has a network of local fundraising teams organising a wide range of activities and events which last year raised £14 million to save lives at sea. Each team is supported by a Community Fundraising Manager although the range and frequency of fundraising events is determined by the team members themselves.
Alongside these teams, many people raise funds on an individual basis on behalf of the RNLI and a number of businesses in the community also choose to support the RNLI as their charity of the month or year. You may be familiar with the charity token schemes operated by retailers where shoppers are given the opportunity to choose which charity they’d like to support, and a proportion of a monthly charity budget is then donated by the retailer to the selected charities.
This is where you come in! If you have a little time on your hands you can support our lifesaving work by identifying opportunities to apply for token schemes on behalf of the RNLI in your region, keeping records of the results and then following up to arrange collection and banking of the funds raised.
Becoming involved with the RNLI could offer you an opportunity to improve your CV, meet new people, learn new skills or just have fun with fundraising in your community. This is a great opportunity to really make a difference by raising vital funds for our volunteer crew members and lifeguards.
