Sight Support Derbyshire
Sight Support Derbyshire is an independent charity, which needs to raise funds in order to provide services for blind and visually impaired people around the county. Although some of our money is raised through grants, individual donations and legacies, a large effort goes into fundraising events throughout the year.
What you will do: You can get involved in many different ways and do as much as you like. You can help to set up our fundraising table with tombola prizes, cakes, books and information, sell raffle tickets, cakes, books and cards, you may wish to give a few hours to help out with a street or supermarket collection or perhaps you can help with some of the organising and the running of events. You can also help in the office by making some phone calls and emailing.
When: You can give as much time as you like with hours to suit you.
Skills Required: Good communication skills, Confident with handling cash, a good sense of humour and happy to help wherever on the day of an event. You may need to find your own transport to and from events. If helping in the office you will need to have the skills to send out emails.
Training and Support: We will give you visual impairment training and training specific to the tasks you will undertake. A member of staff will support you throughout and will meet with you on a regular basis to see how things are going.
Expenses: We will reimburse your out of pocket expenses in line with our expenses policy.
