RSPB Pin Badge Box Fundraising Volunteer - North East & Yorkshire

Around the UK and across the world, nature is in desperate decline. Wildlife and habitats are disappearing at an alarming rate and 10 percent of all UK species are now under threat. We're determined to stop this happening, but we urgently need your help.

Are you an enthusiastic and independent person looking to boost your skills and make a difference? Are you passionate about raising valuable funds for our work to save our wildlife and habitats? If so, please get in touch and become part of the RSPB volunteering team, servicing pin badge boxes in your local area, in your own time.

You will approach local businesses (e.g. shops and cafes) to place boxes, visiting up to 10 sites each month to collect donations and re-stock with pin badges.

Cash donations are paid in at your local Post Office on a timely basis, income recorded and new stock ordered via the RSPB's user-friendly online system.

Your friendly RSPB community fundraiser is there to support you and will be in touch regularly.

Make a difference and be part of our movement, working together to help give nature a home.
