Joining a local fundraising group
Our volunteers are heroes. Without them, we simply couldn't do the work we do. The money they raise allows us to be there for every child that needs us.
They're always on the lookout for new members with new ideas. If you are interested in joining an existing group, or setting up a new group, get in touch with your local NSPCC fundraising team today.
Making a difference in the community
Our dedicated fundraising committee in Jersey regularly hold community events to raise money to support the NSPCC’s Gower Centre in St Helier.
From fashion shows to tennis tournaments, the Jersey committee are finding fun ways to raise money.
The Gower Centre provides services and support for children and families, including our Baby Steps service which helps parents prepare for having a baby.
Joining a local business board
If you run a local business, why not join together with others in your area, pool your resources and help raise money and awareness of the NSPCC's work.
We have lots of local business boards, made up of business leaders, entrepreneurs and individuals from a range of industries. Together, they use their networks and knowledge to raise as much money as possible for our work with children and families.
To find out how you can get involved with a board near you, contact your local fundraising office.
Membership is by invitation only, but if you want to get involved and would be prepared to open up your networks, then please get in touch. We also encourage Board members to share ideas by joining the NSPCC Business Board Members Forum on LinkedIn.
