I volunteered for Home Fundraising on behalf of the British Heart Foundation and helped recruiting volunteers. They had a “wall of fame” with the people who had recruited the most. That made me want to become a part of the wall and quickly became 3rd row.
It was an interesting experience, there was a lot to learn, the pitch, body language and techniques to engage face-to-face with potential buyers. It wasn’t only donating money, it as signing-up to donate money every month. This made it more difficult as people don’t want to commit to such memberships for the long term, but with the right strategies and a smile, I enjoyed the progress and made many friends whilst doing it.
