The most common way to
help any charity is to become a volunteer and this type of
involvement can take many forms.
It can be a formal arrangement or a more casual arrangement where the volunteers are registered with the charity and take part in particular tasks on a regular basis, making themselves available to be on call for a wide range of duties.
It can also be a more spontaneous arrangement where someone finds out about a particular project the charity is running or a particular job that needs doing and volunteers to help with that aspect of the charities work, but no other duties.
The formal and casual
aspects of volunteering for Border Collie Rescue are outlined in
more detail on a page that can be accessed by using the 'About
Volunteering' button in the left hand menu.
Some volunteering options are outlined below. This is not a definitive list!
We need people prepared to transport goods and dogs around the country. Dogs coming in and going out. Goods to foster homes or clients. With goods only one person need be involved. With dogs two. One driving, one handling.
We need people who can spread the word in their local
communities. There are a number of forms this can take.
To find out more see the 'Outreach' page accessed from the left hand menu.
This can take many forms. Can you run stalls selling merchandise and donated items? Can you collect bric a brac and go to car boot sales? Can you gather a group of friends and run a bag pack at a local supermarket? Can you arrange a street collection. There is a whole section on funding our work accessed by a button in the left hand menu.
This is by far the most serious job a volunteer can do. We have a
system. It has to be the same in Inverness as it is in Dover. Dogs
moving around need to be fed, handled and treated in the same way.
It requires training.
Use the 'Fostering' button in the menu on the left to find out more.
We need people to help find things we need. In particular looking out for materials for our Heritage and Library project but also to acquire things we need for the dogs, prizes for raffles and tombola's, a whole range of items and materials any charity or organisation can use. If it can be donated - grand. If we have to purchase - best price please!
Information is always helpful. Our websites need a constant trickle of news and articles. We need up to date and new advice and information about a wide range of subjects that will help people and their dogs.
If you can give a little time to help us generally we will be able to use your services somewhere, sometime. But be prepared to be surprised at what you can do and be prepared to enjoy doing it.
If you need some training for a job we will give it to you and
support your efforts.
If we ask you to do something you are unhappy with or haven’t got time for you can always politely say. NO, sorry, not at the moment ! That's one part of what volunteering is about.
