CPRE Sussex fights for a better future for the Countryside. We work locally to protect, shape and enhance our beautiful, thriving countryside for everyone to value and enjoy. Our campaigning aims to influence decision making on a range of environmental and land-use issues.

At CPRE Sussex we have an exciting opportunity for a Fundraising Events Co-ordinator to help us with our core work. This is an opportunity to be involved in a vital aspect of our work and feel part of a friendly and passionate group.

Activities will involve:

  • contributing ideas for fundraising events based on experience, contacts and interests 
  • taking a lead in organising fundraising events for the branch 
  • working with fundraising volunteers to support events 
  • building relationships with local businesses to negotiate sponsorship 
  • researching the possibility of CPRE members, supporters and patrons who have celebrated homes or gardens contributing to the events programme 
  • attending shows and exhibitions 
  • ensuring events recruit new members
  • gathering names at events for future follow-up and creating mailing lists 
  • contributing to the branch’s overall fundraising strategy and bringing a fundraising angle to all branch activities 
  • being an advocate for the charity at all times - asking people to join, giving out leaflets, gathering names of interested parties and talking about our work. 

What we need from you: our branch office is in Blackboys, East Sussex, so you have the choice to either work from here or work at home. We keep in regular contact via phone and/or email to discuss progress and to provide support. You would also be encouraged to attend group meetings. You will report to a specific Trustee with fund-raising responsibilities.
