Legacies Volunteer

The Society is looking for someone to join our fundraising team to help increase the monies received from legacies.

Leaving a bequest is a wonderful way to leave a gift for both the present and future generations. Over the last few years we have received over £200,000 of legacies, ranging from the few thousand pounds to more substantial amounts. These monies have been used towards various projects including the new moorings at Farnborough, our planned new Kitty electric boat and funding tools for general maintenance along the towpath.

Legacies are critical to help fund our work and we are keen to find more people who can join our legacy team, to raise the profile of legacies both with our members and the wider community along with tapping into the best practice of other organisations.


Enthusiastic, outgoing personality.

Marketing or fundraising experience is a strong plus. 

Please Note: We ask volunteers to become members of the Society as it enables them to receive regular updates along with membership providing insurance cover for volunteer activities.
