Volunteer Fundraiser (Pin Badges)
Minimum Age: You must be at least 16 years old to volunteer for this opportunity.
About this opportunity:
Why we want you When you join our team of over 1,500 volunteers, who are crucial to the running of our pin badge scheme, we will support you to place 1 to 5 boxes in your chosen area. To ensure we follow charity fundraising regulations, the donations from your boxes will need banking every 4-6 weeks, and the pin badges will need topping up. You will then report the income on our user friendly online system and place an order for any additional stock you may need. This can all be done at a time that suits you. Simple! Scotland is an amazing place for wildlife. The variety of species and habitats is outstanding - but they are disappearing at an alarming rate. 10% of all UK species are now under threat.

Last year, in Scotland, the team raised an incredible £177,000 in donations from our pin badge and collection boxes, and almost £1 million nationally. Could you help us raise even more?
