Community Fundraising Volunteers

Community Fundraising volunteers are a critical network of volunteers who help Rays of Sunshine make a difference to the lives of seriously ill children, and their families, by raising awareness and funds for the work of Rays of Sunshine.

Community Fundraising volunteers are a representative of Rays of Sunshine in their local community. They will be trained and well supported throughout the year by our dedicated fundraising team. They will organise fundraising events for Rays of Sunshine throughout the year such as bake sales, sweepstakes or larger scale events, such as a charity ball or summer fete and encourage other individuals and organisations to raise vital funds for Rays of Sunshine, such as local businesses and community groups.
