Fundraising and Events Support Volunteers

Graham Mitchell, our Fundraising and Events Director, is working on various ideas to expand fundraising activities in preparation for possible development work at the theatre. At present he has a small group assisting him in developing the ideas but he is keen to widen the team to take plans to the next stage and to bring them into working reality.  Graham is also looking to expand the team of volunteers to help with the Choir Festival for 2019.

The group are looking to expand the festival but need assistance to do so.

c) Publicity assistant able to assist with poster & flyer distribution and social media promotion of the festival as widely as possible. Currently Jenny & Susan have assisted David delivering posters and flyers to choirs for them to distribute amongst members and followers, but other distribution channels are needed.
