Set Up A Fundraising Group
A fundraising group is a flexible way to promote awareness of Parkinson’s and a fun way to raise money to support those affected by it. By setting up a group you can be involved in events throughout the year at times to suit you; we only ask that you commit to four activities per year.
You’ll be part of something that ensures no one has to face their Parkinson’s alone. Setting up a Fundraising Group is a great way to meet new people and makes an excellent addition to your CV.
As Fundraising Group Coordinator for PCSUK, you will set up and manage your local fundraising group. The group can be as large as you wish but should be no smaller than 3 members.
You will organise and manage local fundraising volunteers, meetings, events, collections and keep group members up to date with news and events. You choose the fundraising events that you wish to run. Typical fundraising events that you may run include sponsored walks, quiz night, fundraising dinners, collections, bring and buy sales.
