Local Champions

Independent Arts relies on fundraising and donations to help support our work across the Island using the arts as a tool improve health and wellbeing and reduce social isolation.

Volunteers play a critical role in our fundraising work with tasks including siting and collecting our charity boxes at shops and businesses across the Island, supporting community groups who are interested in running their own events, and volunteering at Independent Arts’ fundraising events.

Another vital aspect of the Community Champions role is to simply spread the word of what Independent Arts are up to; introducing us to networks and community groups your familiar with.


We are looking for people who:

• Have a friendly, welcoming and approachable manner

• Have an interest or experience in fundraising

• Enjoy and are skilled in social interaction

• Are confident approaching businesses and organisations

• Can work effectively in a team

• Want to make a difference in their community

• Are passionate about our work

• Willing to volunteer evenings and/or weekends on occasion

• Worth remembering:

• People who have benefited from the work of Independent Arts have the potential to make GREAT Community Champions!

• There is no obligation once you’ve signed up as a Community Champion – we’ll simply circulate the events and opportunities we have available, and the work we could use some support on, and if you’re free and willing, your support will be much appreciated!

There’s no obligation or minimum time requirements.
