Summary

If you have experience in fundraising and would like to support an independent branch of the RSPCA in South East Somerset, we would love to hear from you!

Detailed description

We need volunteers who have expertise in income generation to help us maximise the funds raised by the Branch. You will gain new skills and experience as a Branch Trustee whilst enabling us to help more animals.

 

We are looking for a Fundraising Trustee volunteer to support the RSPCA South East Somerset branch. 

 

Overview of the Branch Trustee – Fundraising

 

We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate person, with a background in income generation, who could devote their time to volunteer as a Trustee for our Branch and support us in maximising the funds raised by the branch.

 

Alongside passing on your expertise, this opportunity will give you the chance to influence how we care for and prevent cruelty to animals and drive the implementation of key initiatives. You will serve on the governing body of the charity and be instrumental, alongside fellow Trustees, in the running of the Branch and setting out both the short and long term aims. 

 

As a minimum, Trustees would normally be expected to attend a committee meeting every 4-6 weeks, lasting some 2 to 3 hours. However, the commitment may vary depending on whether the Trustee takes on additional duties.

 

About the RSPCA

 

Founded in 1824 we have been saving animals for almost 200 years and are proud to be the oldest welfare charity around. It has always been our vision to live in a world where all animals are respected and treated with compassion, so our volunteers and employees work tirelessly to ensure that all animals can live free from pain and suffering.

 

Through our numerous campaigns, we seek to raise standards of care, and awareness of issues, affecting animals today. We rely heavily on our volunteers who play a significant role in enabling us to carry out this important animal welfare work every day!

 

Started in 1974, the South East Somerset branch is an independent branch of the RSPCA. We are small and friendly team who are passionate about improving the welfare of animals in South East Somerset.


What do we do?


  • We undertake contributions toward veterinary care for animals in need and ensure animals brought to our attention do not suffer but are offered the best possible chance for the future.


  • We run occasional drop in days for the travelling and Gypsy communities.


  • We even do doorstep care for the more house bound or other animals in need. We give financial support to animals identified by the Inspectorate and our volunteers.


  • We undertake trapping, health checks and neutering for feral colonies of cats whenever we have trained volunteers for this.


About RSPCA South East Somerset Branch

This independent branch of RSPCA was started in 1974. It covers an area encompassing Henstridge, Yeovil, Crewkerne, Langport, Somerton, Street, Glastonbury, Shepton Mallet and Wincanton including Castle Cary and other towns and villages within that perimeter.

We do not have an animal centre but use fosterers and our own small cattery for a small number of animals before getting them ready, neutering and vaccinating and re-homing through a private boarding establishment.
