RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) is looking to set up a Volunteer Fundraising Group in Putney to help support its work for local blind and partially sighted people. The charity has a strong aspiration that individuals might form a fundraising group and go out into their local community to raise much needed funds for people with sight loss.

It's actually up to you as to what fundraising event you'd like to hold, there are lots of options for people to get involved. Some groups can hold regular coffee mornings with cake selling or clothes sales, whilst others might prefer music or cinema nights. For the more enthusiastic, you could also organise massive events like fashion shows or dinner parties, or why not trying something a little more sporty like a Dodgeball tournament?

Each person in the group will have lots of different volunteering opportunities, from group leaders to event organisers or just someone who helps out now and again, even if they only have a few hours to spare. Whatever your time commitment, the charity would love to hear from you and your ideas as we are looking for people with enthusiasm! Of course, RNIB will provide lots of support and advice to help keep your fundraising on track.

RNIB is holding an Open Evening for people that are interested in joining on Thursday 26 June from 6.30pm - 7.30pm at The Prince of Wales pub in Putney (138 Upper Richmond Road, Putney, London SW15 2SP). If you would like to attend please RSVP by contacting Sophie Batchelor on 020 7391 2048 or 079 8316 3005 or emailing
