This role will be fully supported by our Community Fundraising Manager, Jess, so please do get in touch if you’ve got any questions on 020 8782 1171 or joshua@raysofsunshine.org.uk

Why do we need your support?

Rays of Sunshine brightens the lives of seriously and terminally ill children aged between 3 and 18 years old and their families across the UK.

Our work includes:

  • Granting wishes, which can be as unique as the children themselves – from being a princess or a fireman for the day to a trip to Disneyland
  • Working with children’s hospitals and hospices to host activity days and grant Hospital Ward Wishes (e.g. installing play areas and sensory rooms)
  • Organising large-scale outings and events including an annual concert which in 2016 was at The SSE Arena, Wembley

Your role:

As a Sunshine Researcher, we need your local knowledge to help us build relationships in your area, to raise vital funds and enable us to grant more magical wishes.

You will be:

  • Researching community groups, schools and businesses in your area that have the potential to support Rays of Sunshine
  • Helping us to identify businesses in your area who select an annual charity of the year partnership and how we can apply
  • Building a database of local groups such as rotary and inner wheel, we could approach to hold an event for us

What skills and attributes do I need?

  • Strong written skills
  • Basic computer skills such as Microsoft excel, Microsoft word, email and the internet
  • Self-motivated and able to use your own initiative
  • Good knowledge of your local area

 What support will I be given?

  • A full induction to help you understand our work and your role and how much of a difference you will be helping us to make
  • You’ll be given templates and guidelines on what research we need your support with
  • Kirsty will be in regular contact with you to make sure you’re on the right track and to offer any support or help if needed.
  • Kirsty will also feedback on any support we receive as a direct result of your research

Where will I be based?

  • This is a flexible computer based role, which means you can work from any location where you have access to email and the internet.
  • Due to the nature of this role, you can easily fit your research around your existing personal and work commitments.

This is perfect for you if you’re looking for a way to volunteer and give back but are short on time and unable to commit to a certain number of volunteering hours per week or month
