We need Pin Badge Box Volunteers in Scotland to help us raise vital funds for nature. This role is perfect for anyone looking to volunteer flexibly for a few hours per month and who enjoys meeting new people.

  • Collecting the money and topping up boxes with extra pin badges, every 4 -6 weeks (depending on the site and your convenience).
  • Counting the money and banking the donations from boxes.
  • Ensuring that pin badge boxes are in a good condition, replacing where necessary.
  • Using our user-friendly website to record your banked donations.

  • Volunteers must wash their hands thoroughly after handling cash, and must sanitise hands before and after highlighting pin badge box on site

The RSPB works throughout Scotland and all over the rest of the UK to give nature a home, both on and off our reserves. The RSPB’s mission is to create a world richer in nature. We work with our partners to keep common species common, recover threatened species, protect and restore special places and inspire and enable everyone to act for nature. We also work globally, wherever our shared nature goes or the need exists.

  • Develop various skills such as fundraising, communication, public relations and marketing.
  • Gain insight into the RSPB’s work.
  • Make additional community links and meet new people in your local area.
  • Undertake training and benefit from support throughout your volunteering.
