The Heart Foundation is looking for big-hearted people who enjoy organising events and managing people to play a key role in the organisation of their biggest fundraiser of the year – the Big Heart Appeal!
Heart disease is New Zealand’s single biggest killer and claims the life of one person every 90 minutes. Many of these deaths are premature and preventable. Donations raised through the Big Heart Appeal will fund cutting-edge research into heart disease and specialist training for New Zealand cardiologists.
About the role:
Volunteer Area Coordinators coordinate the street collection in their local areas for the Big Heart Appeal on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 February 2022. They are an essential link between the Heart Foundation and a team of volunteers who generously give up their time to collect donations at various sites in their local area.
The Big Heart Appeal team will assist you along the way and will provide everything you will need for a successful collection, including a detailed brief beforehand, volunteer rosters, street collection equipment and site permits.
Skills and requirements:
We look forward to hearing from you.
Passionate and aligned with the Heart Foundation’s mission and the heart health cause
