RSPB is the largest nature conservation charity in Europe and they are looking for Volunteer Fundraisers in Fife to raise money for RSPB Scotland through their pin badge scheme. They will support you to place pin badge boxes in your chosen venue, which can be anything from shops, to garden centres, tourist attractions and pubs. Once a box has been placed, to ensure we follow charity fundraising regulations, the boxes must be visited and the money from them banked at least once a month. You will then report the income on our user-friendly online system and place an order for any additional stock you may need. Simple!
One great aspect of this volunteering role is its flexibility and it can be easily done at a time and location that suits you best, usually it takes only 2 hours a month! It is a really important and rewarding role, a volunteer can raise thousands of pounds a year to support our conservation projects just by managing a few pin badge boxes!
Working on a croft which is developing a business to provide veg boxes for the local community. The opportunity offers the chance to gain experience and knowledge of organic vegetable production including preparing land, raising seedlings, potting on and harvest. Organic methods are used for soil fertility, pest and disease prevention and weed control. Minimal fossil fuel use is also important and hand tools and animals are used to clear land for production. Other croft work such as fencing, working with sheep, pigs, hens or selling produce to the local community is also available. Work is varied but can be physically demanding and sometimes take place in wet, windy or cold weather. Oilskins, gloves and some sizes of rubber boots can be provided.

We have opportunities for all.

If you are a green-fingered god or goddess, then we have seven acres which we are turning into a series of gardens to house the birds and make the site a joy to be beheld. There are hundreds of trees to plant, water-gardening, we have two acres of orchard and vegetable garden that needs caring for, if you have propagation skills, caring for seedlings, etc then this would be a great place for to have lots of fun.
If you have animal care skills, then there are nearly four hundred birds on site and various mammals in the pipe-line that need daily health checks, watering, fed and their pens that need cleaning. In the breeding season there are hundreds of chicks that need cared for so there is always lots to do.

Tasks can include planting, dead-heading, weeding, pruning and watering our permanent and annual planting displays. Tasks can also include litter-picking, painting and helping out at our community events. Volunteering opportunities are available with us throughout the year. We run weekly Team sessions on Monday mornings from spring throughout autumn (in normal circumstances ending with an optional visit to a local café for a cuppa and catch up) but also work individually / in pairs at other times throughout the week. We garden in an environmentally friendly way to benefit and encourage our wildlife. We hope to inspire our community to be more aware of what we can all do to help our environment.
Volunteers are encouraged to work in the gardens on Wednesdays and the last Saturday of the month (every Saturday from April 2020). Volunteering is coordinated by a designated board member, but volunteers work in the gardens under the direction of the gardener and/or the designated Board member on day-to-day gardening or manual labour tasks.
In 2019, garden volunteers contributed almost 2000 hours, which is nearly equivalent to a full-time employee. As the gardens and woodlands are developed, it is anticipated that even more volunteer time will be required to maintain and develop the Gardens.
To become one of our volunteers please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest or complete the VOLUNTEER FORM on the website. You can also follow us on our Facebook page for regular updates on the project.
