Things are really beginning to buzz now. Our new volunteer group is forging ahead with plans for a newsletter, re-vamped website and the best-ever RSPCA week collection effort. We also have an enthusiastic and growing team of helpers at the bookshop, which is now opening six days a week: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. Anyone who might be interested in training to cover Tuesday, please email email@example.com as it would be great if we can make the full 7 days by early Summer.
The catch in all this is that, for a while, the existing committee members will be busier and busier the more help we get because new people need training and support. Don't get me wrong, this is GOOD! However it does mean light blogging and less attention than usual to some of our other activities.
If you can spare 2 or more hours between 30th April and 6th May, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as we need all the collectors we can possibly recruit. Volunteer collections are one of THE most cost-effective ways of fundraising as there are virtually no overheads and donors like to know that all the money they give will be spent on helping local animals.
