At Cats Protection we offer opportunities in fundraising and events; our shops; and at our centres.
We have some fantastic opportunities to volunteer and directly help cats and kittens through our fundraising and events initiatives.
How many people can get involved?
We can support one person through to groups of 15-20 or more. A group of 10 or more could staff a bucket collection day, form a small organising committee to host a fundraising event or source raffle prizes for a raffle and dress-down day at work. Please give as much notice as possible when applying for these opportunities.
Where are the opportunities based?
We have opportunities available throughout the UK. We have site-based fundraising events and initiatives which require teams of volunteers, or we can work with you to source fundraising opportunities in your local area, these could range from bucket collections at supermarkets, to street collections or manning a stall at a busy train station.
Got a flair for fashion? Or are you a bit of a bookworm? Our shops offer a great team building experience for your employees – we can arrange ‘shop takeovers’ where the team that raises the most income in a day wins! Alternatively you can help process and merchandise stock and donations or develop your customer service skills in one of our charity shops based throughout the country.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Our centres are resuming ESV opportunities where it is safe to do so – you will need to contact your nearest centre to check.
A good example of one person using their ESV to help Cats Protection is Jenny who has four ESV days a year, which she books in advance. Jenny drafts and schedules social media content for our events campaigns. She uses her own desk and does not travel to an office, instead we communicate via email, Skype and good old-fashioned phone calls.
If you have any queries about applying for our ESV opportunities please contact email@example.com and mark your email ‘FAO Rebecca Worth’ or call 01825 741 960 and ask for Rebecca.
Please note – Once your application form is submitted we will do our best to accommodate your ESV request wherever possible. However, every site is different and decisions on the availability of ESV opportunities will be made according to whether we can offer the appropriate level of support, to ensure ESV volunteers have a positive experience.
