Volunteer Fundraiser (Pin Badges)

Around the UK and across the world, nature is in steady, desperate decline. Wildlife and wild places are disappearing at an alarming rate. 10% of all UK species are now under threat. We're determined to stop this happening, but we urgently need your help.

Our community fundraising volunteers are the local face of the RSPB. Last year, in the South East, the team raised an incredible £204,000 in donations from our pin badge and collection boxes, and almost £1 million nationally. Could you help us raise even more?

What do we ask of you?

When you join our team of over 1,500 volunteers, who are crucial to the running of our pin badge scheme, we will support you to place 1 to 5 boxes in your chosen area. To ensure we follow charity fundraising regulations, the donations from your boxes will need banking every 4-6 weeks, and the pin badges will need topping up. You will then report the income on our user friendly online system and place an order for any additional stock you may need. This can all be done in a time to suit your other commitments. Simple!
