Buxton Autumn Fair Fundraising Support

This opportunity takes place until 26 Aug 2019.

Zink Projects are hosting their Autumn Fair in Buxton on Monday 26th August. We need an events team to help plan, organise, set up and run a fundraising stall. We aim to raise awareness of what we do as a charity as well as raise some money. At our last fundraising stall we were encouraging people to set up standing orders to support us on a regular basis, offering one of our printed shopper bags in exchange for every £5 donation made and activities for children and adults which people paid for per turn. We need people who are willing to find out about us as a charity and therefore able to tell members of the public a little bit about us, or direct them to the right place if you're unsure. Work with us and other volunteers, come up with further fundraising ideas for the stall, organise what is needed for the stall and help run the stall on the day.
