Essex & Herts fundraiser James Ettinger is the latest recipient of The Canvasser of the Month Award.
James has recruited lottery members on behalf of Tower Lotteries since August 2017, and he had a phenomenal month in June recording his highest ever number of sign-ups for the charity. In addition to recruiting lottery members for EHAAT, James and his work colleague Stephen Myall will fundraise for East Anglia AA and London’s AA.
It wasn’t just the impressive number of new members that won James the award, it was his ability to obtain e-mail addresses and opt people in to receiving further communication that tipped the balance in his favour. Under new GDPR rules, charities can no longer correspond with people going forward unless they have specifically been given permission to do so. It was James’s meticulous approach to this and asking people’s permission for the various air ambulances to correspond with them in the future, that won him the award.
James had indicated that he will choose his daughter a new iPad as the prize for winning.
