Terrence Higgins Trust
Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) is the leading HIV and sexual health charity in the UK working to reduce the spread of HIV and to promote good sexual health. We campaign for greater understanding of HIV and sexual ill-health, providing services across England, Wales and Scotland.

You'll support our work by fundraising with your friends, community, family and colleagues. This is a vital role as it helps us to reach new people, inspire new fundraising activity, and thank our supporters for the work they are doing. We'll provide ongoing support, including exciting and inspiring fundraising ideas. This is a varied volunteer role that's well suited for anyone interested in fundraising and organising events of all sizes.

You'll also have the opportunity to volunteer at events such as our World AIDS Day Walk based in Brighton and UK-wide running and challenge events. We ask that all Virtual Volunteer Fundraising Ambassadors aim to raise a minimum of £500 in their first year in the role. All fundraising must be carried out within the most current Governments COVID-19 isolation and gathering in groups guidelines.

The benefits for this role include:

- Recognition of your fundraising achievements when you reach £500, £1,000, £2,000 and £5,000.

- Support and supervision from a dedicated Volunteer Manager.

- Updates on the work of the charity and the impact your fundraising is making.

- Reimbursement of expenses on agreed tasks.

- References given subject to Terrence Higgins Trust policy.

- Opportunity to develop and update skills and gain new experiences.
