At Rainbow Trust we have a team of dedicated Regional Fundraisers, ready to spread the word and help you raise funds in your community to support families. Katherine, our Regional Fundraiser for the North East and South East, shares why she loves her job and how you can support her in your area.
Hello, my name is Katherine I have been part of the Regional Fundraising Team for nearly three years!
The area that I cover is pretty big as it includes the Home Counties in the South-East as well as a large region in the North-East from Northumberland all the way down to Yorkshire. I’m often asked what the best part of my role is and I find it’s very easy to answer. I work with so many different individuals and organisations and no week is the same. One morning I can be in a primary school assembly and the next I am meeting with a supporter taking on a huge challenge to raise funds for Rainbow Trust.
Like most jobs, a Regional Fundraiser role is challenging but rewarding. The challenge is that we are still a small team covering larges patches. Thankfully, we have many wonderful volunteers who step in to help us with cheque presentations, talks etc. If you would be interested in joining our volunteer programme then we would love to hear from you. Knowing where the money goes and working with such amazing people is what I find most rewarding.
If you or an organisation you are linked to is interested in fundraising for Rainbow Trust, then I would love to hear from you.
Get in touch with me on email or call 01372 220013.
Katherine, Regional Fundraiser
