When We Need You
From 13/09/2012 to 30/04/2013
We are a community project in Greater Craigmillar providing educational, health/fitness and social opportunities for local older folk. We’ve been around for 20 years and pride ourselves in having a proven record of good quality service provision. We now seek to engage a volunteer fundraiser who is familiar with application processes and has time to spend searching for funds to help us continue our work. You would be joining a small team of staff and volunteers and work in a friendly atmosphere of rewarding work in return for your commitment to us.
