Set up a new Hygiene Bank in your area
This role involves setting up a new Hygiene Bank Project in your local area.....
You will be the project coordinator who oversees the project and is the main point of contact - Together with your team of volunteers you will run the project by setting up drop off points, collecting/sorting donations and delivering them to local community partners. You can also participate in additional activities such as social media, fundraising and engaging in community activities to raise awareness of the charity and your local giving. Setting up a hygiene bank is a unique opportunity to gain a whole range of skills and experience, make new friends and gain the satisfaction of leading and working in a team that makes a real difference in your community. Running a project can be an empowering experience and an opportunity to connect with people to make positive changes locally and nationally.
All of our grassroots projects are self-funded, with our support - We advise teams to fundraise a set-up contribution after sign-up to spend on their projects. All funds raised locally can be used to benefit your local community. Your fundraised funds help towards the costs of initial kit, hygiene product donations and other marketing needs. This contribution can be raised before sign-up via fundraising or afterwards, with support from Head Office.
