|Name:||Poppy Appeal Organiser - Yatton, Cleeve and Claverham Area|
|Organisation:||Royal British Legion - Yatton Branch|
This is a short term role to cover the Poppy Appeal
The British Legion are looking for a Poppy Appeal Organiser to co-ordinate the Poppy Appeal for 2020. I know this seems a long way off but the months soon start to fly by and before we know it this year’s Poppy Appeal will be upon us.
The role includes the ordering of Poppies and various other items and for
these to be distributed around the Yatton, Cleeve and Claverham areas.
For a good number of years we have had a stand outside the Co-op in Yatton and this has always been successful covering the two weeks leading up to the Poppy Appeal. Andy has organised the rota with one hour slots and a comfortable seat for those who do not wish to stand for too long.
At the end of the Poppy Appeal all the money is collected and banked and this is carried out over a number of days.
The ability to use a computer would be useful and also a car driver and expenses can be claimed.
Remembrance Day is the 11th November every year and the British Legion is one of the biggest Charities in the UK. Selling Poppies started after the 1st World War to remember those who gave their lives so bravely. The British Legion provide practical care, advice and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.
We are looking for someone who is well organised and able to communicate with people both on the phone and face to face. Computer skills would be helpful and a car driver as this is a semi rural area and public transport not always reliable. An informal interview for anyone who is interested in this role.
The experience of working with people on a day to day basis and how to deal with any problems that might arise.
|Expenses:||Out of pocket expenses are available|
|Training:||No training – we need a person to is able to use their own initiative and to be able to organise. Help is available from the present Poppy Appeal Organiser.|
