March membership - don't forget (7/2/11)

Don’t forget:

Throughout March, for every brand new direct debit member recruited by your Group, we’re passing on the entire first year’s membership fee back to the Group.

What can you use the extra funds for?

Well, we’d prefer you spent the money (unless your reserves are low).  You can spend it on any of our charitable purposes: use it for helping to recruit even more members, or to publicise the Ramblers, or to buy some new promotional displays, or to train volunteers, or to improve your website………...or lots of other things.

All you have to do is :

·       add the code R11G3P on the bottom right of the recruitment forms, and the funds will be allocated to your Group.

·       make sure the completed recruitment forms arrive at central office by 4th April

The extra funds will be sent to Areas during April / early May. Areas will then forward the relevant sum onto each Group.

We aim to end the year with more members than we started. To succeed, we need as many Ramblers Groups as possible to get the message out there promoting Ramblers membership, our huge variety of 38,000 led walks each year, fantastic member benefits, discretionary member discounts and – for many people the most important - our vital work protecting footpaths and the other places people love to walk.

More information, including a briefing sheet, is on the volunteers section of the website:
