In this rewarding role, you will assist the Community Fundraising Manager in building the Hospice’s community fundraising programme, forging new relationships, and developing existing ones with our local community to raise income and the profile of the Hospice.

You will assist in developing and implementing plans to increase income and provide encouragement and support to individuals and groups fundraising for the Hospice including churches, schools, social groups and our own Friends Groups. You will plan and organise fundraising events and activities to increase engagement, as well as support mass participant events organised by colleagues.

· Working with the communications team to produce resources such as certificates, posters, and fundraising packs.

· Ensuring that all donor details are recorded on the Beacon Database and donors thanked.

· PC skills

· Excellent communication skills

· A commitment to the work of Weston Hospicecare
