What will you be doing?

5th Saffron Walden Scouts now need a group fundraiser to help support our activities and improve our facilities. Raising extra funds means we can provide a wider range of exciting opportunities to our young people. With experience of organising fundraising appeals, grant applications and cake stalls, you won’t be afraid to get stuck in with anything from a car wash to helping a sponsored triathlon go swimmingly! No specific time commitment is required and the role is flexible enough to fit around you. We’ll provide full support and training, a sociable network, plus it all looks great on your CV.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for someone who is passionate about helping young people. Ideally you will have fundraising ideas of your own along with experience in fundraising with youth groups and through grant applications. A willingness to muck and join an amazing team of volunteers provide incredible opportunities is a must. Whilst there is no expectation that you attend camps or other events, the opportunity is there for you to be as involved as you wish and it inevitably helps with understanding on where funds are going!

What difference will you make?

5th Saffron Walden Scouts provides amazing opportunities for young people from 4 to 14. We do all the traditional 'scouty' things: hikes, camps, fires, sleepovers, kayaking etc. We recently returned from a trip to Northern France.  We have recently opened one of the first Squirrel Dreys in the country for 4-6 year olds, and have plans to expand further. All this costs money! We are generally well supported by parents, and previous fundraising has been successful. We are now looking for someone to take this on and help us to get to the next level so we can provide even more amazing opportunities to even more young people.
