The Friends of the PSU scheme raises around £24,000 every year. Members of the scheme, known as Friends, commit to supporting the charity through regular donations, and in return, receive updates about the PSU and access to special Friends’ events.
The Friends’ Committee is responsible for organising local events for the Friends of the PSU as part of their annual subscription.
The aim of this committee will be to organise two events per year aiming at entertaining and connecting the PSU Friends, individual supporters and corporate partners; as well as recruiting new Friends.
One event will take place in February and the other one in October. Our target is to raise £15,000 between both events. All the money raised by the Committee will go to support the PSU.
We would like committee members who have specialist skills in fundraising and event management. As the fundraising target is £20,000, we require volunteers who have extensive experience in those particular fields.
The Friends Committee are vital in enabling us to support people alone in court. Through organising fundraising events, you give us a secure base from which to plan for the future. This makes a real difference to the way our volunteers are able to help people in need.
If you would like to join your local Friends’ Committee or have any questions, contact us via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 020 7073 1703.
