New Oxfam venture in Frome

OXFAM is looking to launch a new Frome Fundraising Group for local residents who would like to use their time and skills to help make a lasting change for people living in poverty. 

Alex Wilkinson, fundraising support assistant for Oxfam in Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for people in the community to form an inspiring team and to make a global impact through local activity. It is also a great chance for individuals to develop new abilities and learn more about one of the world’s leading charities.”

Oxfam’s Fundraising Groups are teams of volunteers who work together to organise a calendar of fundraising events. These activities can be of any type and can range from coffee mornings to sponsored walks, quizzes to music events.

There are roles to suit everyone and that fit a large variety of skill sets. For instance, group members may manage event logistics, speak to local media or use social media to spread the word of the group. Groups consist of a leader, secretary, treasurer and group members. These positions will all provide a great platform to develop new skills and to have a voice in Oxfam and its work.

Oxfam envisages the Frome Fundraising Group being at the very heart of the community. The group will provide a unique chance to help make a real difference to people living in poverty, importantly whilst having fun!
