The RNLI has a network of local fundraising team organising a wide range of activities and events which last year raised £14 million to save lives at sea.  Each team is supported by a Community Fundraising Manager, although the range and frequency of fundraising events is determined by the team members themselves. 

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 fundraising team members have been volunteering for many years, some just join us for a few months – whatever their commitments allow.

Our Newcastle fundraising team is currently looking for a motivated Volunteer Event Organiser to assist in organising a variety of different activities throughout the year. This is an opportunity to get involved in organising a wide variety of different tasks ranging from quiz and supper evenings, themed dances, sponsored events and activity days. Also, it is your chance to be creative and to come up with some innovative ideas to raise money for this vital charity.

As a Volunteer Event Organiser you should enjoy planning and organising, or want to develop these skills, and be prepared to work as part of a team.  This exciting and role will be varied and suit someone who already has or would like to develop events planning/project management experience.

This is a great opportunity to really make a difference by raising vital funds for our volunteer crew members and lifeguards.
