National annual World Sight Day fundraising and event officers
Global Sight Solutions is a registered charity, based in Guildford, which provides free eye care to the world’s poorest by establishing eye hospitals in India, Africa and elsewhere. It is estimated that worldwide there are some 50 million poor people in need of this service. Global Sight Solution’s business plan ensures that each facility becomes financially self-sufficient, thereby ensuring that cataract operations, and the like, can be provided on an ongoing basis. Each hospital is administered by members of Rotary International which ensures transparency and accountability of every transaction. Rotary International provides grants for such humanitarian work and thus enables a cataract operation to be carried out for a donation of just £5 here in the UK!
Global Sight Solutions is the trademarked name of The Guildford Rotary Eye Project.
We need enthusiastic people to join our team and take special responsibility for organising events to mark October’s World Sight Day, such that the charity’s profile in the community is enhanced and also that funds are raised to help its cause. It is envisaged that the team will meet regularly at a local venue which will enable all volunteers to exchange ideas in a relaxed environment. The time spent undertaking this role will be decided primarily by each volunteer. Full support and training in respect of the charity's work will be provided.
You need: to be an enthusiastic person who is experienced in the field of Fundraising and Event organising and who wishes to see such skills used to support our work in helping the millions of poor people with sight challenges.
