"My name is Natalie and I work at your local Hutt Valley Women’s Refuge over at Pretoria St, Lower Hutt. I am the new Marketing & Fundraising Executive at the refuge and am arranging the annual appeal this year. This a quick email to touch base with you around our winter annual appeal that is happening in July. In the past you have assisted us with collections and volunteers, which has been instrumental in us raising funds to deliver services like our safe house, crisis line and other supportive services for local women and children in need."
"Are you able to contribute again this year? Below are the details of our 2021 appeal plans:"
  • Dates: Friday 30th July, Saturday 31st July
  • Hours: Roughly 8:00am – 6:00pm (dependant on location)
  • Locations: Various locations across Lower and Upper Hutt
What we require:
  • Volunteers to support our organisation and collect money for us at approved locations.
  • In the past you have arranged enough volunteers to cover multiple days at local supermarkets, would you be able to cover 2 x days this year?
If you can assist with this worthwhile cause please liaise with Mike Stewart at M.Stewart@gns.cri.nz
