Knowle and Dorridge Fundraising Branch
We raise funds mainly through collections and sale of Christmas cards. We maintain a high profile for the RNLI through a presence at all local fairs and fetes.
Annual income is circa £20k, the largest sources are £8k from a house to house collection over three weeks involving circa 100 helpers and £3k profit from Christmas cards sales.
Other activities include flag day (a number of locations), collection boxes in pubs and shops, coffee mornings.
A challenge is to continually recruit new helpers to replace those retiring. Despite having over 100 helpers, it is difficult to attract people to help organise activities.
We need new committee members to replace those who will be retiring including soon a new Chairman.
Chairman and other officers, committee members, volunteers to help organise specific events.
