Dedicated loneliness charity, the Marmalade Trust, are seeking an enthusiastic and passionate Event Coordinator to plan and oversee our Christmas Cheer 2022 events to support people experiencing loneliness back into social connection and ensure they are not alone this Christmas.
Marmalade Trust is a small but highly ambitious charity that supports people who are experiencing loneliness to feel more connected. Since 2013 we have been providing Christmas Day events to those who would otherwise be alone in Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire.
For the last 2 years, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have organised volunteer doorstep visits for our members (service users) experiencing loneliness on Christmas Day. However, in 2022, we want to relaunch our Christmas events at pubs and restaurants across Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire for 200 members (50 mini events/tables) and doorstep visits for 20 members who feel unable to leave their homes. A minimum of 100 volunteers will support these events.
As the Event Coordinator you will be responsible for planning and coordinating the Christmas Cheer Day events and visits, organising the creation and delivery of the Connection Advent Calendars and Christmas hampers to our members as well as support with fundraising activities.
Note: The above list is not exhaustive, and you may be required to undertake other tasks and responsibilities as requested by your line manager.
Required skills and knowledge
Note: The candidate must be based in Bristol, be able to work on Christmas Day and hold a UK driving licence, have access to a car and be able to drive.
