Eastleigh and Borough MENCAP is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our friendly Committee.
Do you have a particular flair for fundraising? Or could you help us to keep our accounts up to date? Even if you only have an hour or so to spare each month, your contribution would be much appreciated.
As well as our main Committee, we also have a social group, responsible for organising our social functions throughout the year. If that's more to your liking, then please do get in touch.
We are currently looking for support for the following roles...
Interested? Then please give Elaine Fish a call on 02380 275475, or email email@example.com
Would you have time to fit us into your schedule? We are always very happy to welcome friendly people to help.
Message from our Chair, Elaine Fish...
This year some grants that support our work have been withdrawn.
We have had to find money elsewhere, we have been holding coin collections at Waitrose, Asda and Tesco, which have generated some much needed funds for our projects and services.
Committee members and our development officer have given up their time to take shifts outside the supermarkets, and I am grateful to them for doing so.
We will run coin collections on a regular basis to raise funds for the Society, but we need more volunteers to join us.
Can you help? Would you be prepared join a rota for future collections?
Each “shift” would be no longer than 2 hours at a supermarket in the Eastleigh borough or Romsey area and all you would have to do is to be friendly and welcoming to any shoppers who wanted to donate. You could do just one collection or join us more regularly: it is your choice!
We need more volunteers so that we can have two people per “shift”. Please do get in touch with Michelle if you want to join in. (02380 483471)
Thank you. Elaine Fish (Chair of Eastleigh Borough & Romsey MENCAP)
