  • To be responsible for the new business delivery of our schools fundraising programme.
  • To deliver on fundraising through other groups with a particular focus on children’s activities.
  • To research, identify and develop new fundraising opportunities and areas of potential support.
  • To work closely with the Supporter Care and Database Officer to ensure participants go on an effective, positive journey with us, building on their initial support.
