Community Fundraising and Events

Swindon Business Board Member

Swindon Business Board Member

  • Location:
  • Closing Date:
    6 September 2024
  • Commitment :
    Flexible (at least 1-2 hours a week)


You'll be part of a group of local professionals who work together to organise fundraising and awareness events/opportunities in the area as well as utilise connections and broaden NSPCC's Swindon network. Attending regular meetings is a requirement to ensure continuous progress with projects - these meetings are mostly in-person. 


What you'll do

You'll volunteer with the Board to stage a variety of corporate and community events to bring professionals and the public together to raise funds for local NSPCC services. Whether that's a networking dinner, securing sponsorship for a Christmas event, a football friendly or a relay down the river Thames - variety is what the Board is all about! You'll also support your local Community Fundraising Manager to secure support to enable the delivery of NSPCC led campaigns and events. You'll engage with the public, organisations and local communities – promoting a positive image of the NSPCC! You'll be a valued part of our Swindon Business Board, a group which has been fundraising consistently for 30 years and which sits within our Swindon Branch network of volunteers who have a legacy of supporting children in the Swindon area for 125 years.

What you'll get

We'll support you with advice, skills and tools to help you fundraise and spread the word about the NSPCC. 

You'll learn more about how you're helping to protect children in Swindon and across the South West region, and you'll have the opportunity to grow your skills and inspire others to support us.

You will be required to tell others all about the work the NSPCC is doing, but don't worry you'll get plenty of support with this.
