Honley & Brockholes Branch RNLI
Raising funds for the RNLI in Honley for over 95 years.
Becoming part of your local fundraising team could offer you an opportunity to improve your CV, meet new people, learn new skills or just have fun with fundraising in your community.
Some of our team members have been volunteering for many years, some just join us for a few months – whatever their commitments allow. Do you want to volunteer in your local community?
Do you want to have fun assisting at fundraising events and activities, but prefer to be a team player rather than a team leader?
If so, joining our fundraising team may be just the fit for you!
As a volunteer fundraiser you should enjoy meeting and talking to people, or want to develop these skills, and want to be an ambassador for the RNLI in the local community.

What volunteer roles can you do?
Fundraising team member
Help with fundraising activities, while having fun and making new friends.

Secretary
Be the primary point of contact for the team and cascade information to team members.

Chair
Have overall responsibility for the team’s fundraising programme.

Souvenir secretary
Sell a range of RNLI souvenirs and gifts at local events. Reference check will be carried out. Access to a computer and the internet and will be comfortable with filling out a simple form online. In addition to filling out the online form, a report will be submitted at meetings.

Main point of contact for the Branch Accounts Team in relation to reporting and auditing.

Designated Event Volunteer
The main part of this role is to gather information about all fundraising events taking place in our Fundraising Branch, and add the details of the events into the on line form.
This is an admin-based role and so requires someone that has a computer, access to the internet and will be comfortable with filling out a simple form online. In addition to filling out the online form, it’s important that you keep all up to date of any events, especially if the dates or locations change!
The ‘Designated Event Volunteer’ does not necessarily need to be the chair, secretary, or event organiser, it can be any member of the branch, but must be someone that is an active member and can access the required event information.
Full training will be provided in early 2023 and you will have ongoing support from both your Community Manager and the central Volunteer Experience Team.
