This summer marked the exciting moment when months of planning came together and our new local fundraising department was set up. Headed by Michael Macdonald, Jason Maxwell and Jim Hill the new section is intended to offer those who want to fundraise the opportunity to do so without having to move away from home.
Initially we’ve opened teams in Manchester, Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Glasgow and we are looking for motivated and enthusiastic Fundraisers and Team Leaders who live in these areas to join us in making this new venture a success!
Teams will work 7 hours a day, 5 days a week, making their own way to a meeting point in the city centre before being driven by the company to the area they’re fundraising in that day. As with our live-in side door-knocking finishes at 8, after which the teams are then taken back into the city centre.
It’s early days but the team have big plans to expand the local side of things to other locations across the country so watch this space!
