Prospect Hospice is inviting local groups to hear from one of its fundraising ambassadors in 2016.
The main aim is to inform community groups about the charity’s work and its need to raise funds.
A group of volunteers from professional backgrounds will be primed with presentations about the Wroughton-based charity. The idea is that they will join philanthropic and affinity groups and help fill their speaker engagement calendar for the year.
The talk, which lasts about 45 minutes, is intended to let people know the scale and range of services the hospice offers, and how its work is funded.
Amy Francombe, Prospect Hospice’s community fundraiser, said: “It is vital for Prospect Hospice to be able to communicate about our work, and the support that we need to be able to deliver it. Many local groups have warmly welcomed speakers from here in the past, but our ambassadors are ready to provide a full, up-to-date presentation on what we do now, which has changed considerably in recent years. We think they are very well placed.”
Prospect Hospice currently has six ambassadors who are willing to visit local groups for talks. To book a talk from a Prospect Hospice fundraising ambassador, please call Amy Francombe on 01793 816161.
