Community Fundraiser

24th August to 31st August
You will work within your local community, Church, or community group to promote TWAM and help raise the funds needed to keep the tools flowing.
This activity is brought to you by The Union in partnership with Manchester Community Central

 
Tools with a Mission collects usable donated tools and sends them to Africa for livelihood creation.
You will work within your local community, Church, or community group to promote TWAM and help raise the funds we need to keep the tools flowing.
You will organise events of all kinds or find others to do them for you, from music nights to traditional coffee mornings.
It means watching what is happening in the community and finding people to enter sponsored events such as fun runs, 10Ks and walks for TWAM. 
It will include working with other volunteers to arrange events such as TWAM evenings with coffee, cake, or a buffet.
You’ll tell everyone how great TWAM is and why we need their support.

We are looking for passionate, energetic people who can organise things and get things done, identify others, and mobilise them to organise events. We need people who can work as a team and get stuck into the stimulating role.
 
You’ll get pull-up banners, leaflets, resources and loads of support from everyone at TWAM, from the Volunteering Coordinator and the Fundraising and Communications Officer to your local TWAM Tool Collectors and Volunteer Speakers.
You will also be given a TWAM Polo Shirt, fleece, and an ID card if required.
From the role, you will gain warm satisfaction at the difference you make in people’s lives.   You may also have opportunities if you wish to learn new skills. We will provide a reference for a future employer or other organisation if required.

We provide an induction to the role via phone, electronically or in person and a volunteer handbook on starting.    You will have a named contact within TWAM for any questions or problems, and further training can be provided as required.
