Get involved with RST!

We are looking for volunteers to join our events team in Glasgow, helping to plan and run event and activities to fundraise for and raise awareness of RST. In the past we’ve had concerts, poetry events, sponsored swims, a t-shirt design competition and much more – can you bring some great ideas and enthusiasm to the RST volunteer team? 

About the role

Fundraising volunteers are crucial to the continued work of RST. A small team shares the tasks of raising funds and promoting the work of the organisation by organising and representing RST at concerts, talks, and other events.

This is a great opportunity to gain experience in practical fundraising, meet new people, have fun and make a huge difference to people’s lives by raising funds for our grants. 

Main tasks

  • Thinking of creative, engaging fundraising activities and making them a reality
  • Working as part of a team to plan and organise community events to raise awareness of RST’s work and fundraise for our grants
  • Diverse events management tasks – everything from promotion and publicity to budgeting, seeking out acts or even performing yourself if you’ve got a talent to share!Georgian musicians

Benefits to the volunteer
