The veterans’ charity Erskine is to pilot a new fundraising campaign using door-to-door fundraising.
Over the coming months specially trained fundraisers will be knocking on doors around Scotland to spread the word about Erskine and to ask generous members of the public to pledge their support. This month, fundraisers will be concentrating on visiting areas across Dumfries and Galloway.
Easily identifiable in their purple Erskine jackets, fundraisers will each will carry a unique ID card. They have permission from local authorities and local police will have been informed in advance.
Erskine has been rebuilding shattered lives, restoring dignity and caring for ex-servicemen and women since 1916. The charity relies heavily on voluntary donations to care for more than 1300 veterans each year within five care homes located across Scotland.
Door-to-door fundraising is proven to be one of the most cost-effective methods for Erskine to recruit valuable long-term supporters, which is absolutely vital to the continuation of the work that Erskine does.
