Axis is currently looking to set up a fundraising group and also to recruit volunteers to support the work we do.
Our previous fundraising team disbanded last year due to the age and health of the volunteers and we desperately need a new team. Fundraising can take the form of the usual activities such as stalls and supermarket collections etc; or if you have a particular skill, craft or interest you could utilise that. This could be anything from baking to painting to gardening or theatre.
Previously our band of knitting enthusiasts would knit throughout the year and then hold a pop-up shop in the run up to Christmas, which raised several £1,000s each year. We also had one volunteer create a Flower Show garden for Axis which raised funds through the sale of the plants.
We are particularly looking for someone who can set up and run a team of fundraisers in Shrewsbury and in Telford. We would be able to support the group with publicity materials and help co-ordinate members and events if necessary.
Alternatively, if you feel you could offer some time as a volunteer, say for example with office admin, or have any particular skills you could offer on a voluntary basis to help and support Axis we would be pleased to hear from you.
Please give Irene Ferguson, operations manager, a call for an informal chat on 01743 357777.
