Muscular Dystrophy UK


Fundraising Group Co-ordinator

We are looking to build Fundraising Groups across the UK, these groups who will consist of between 3-8 people will help us extend our reach by fundraising, attending talks and presentations, creating local networks and building awareness of the charity and how we can help people living with a muscle wasting condition all within their community.

The role of the FG Co-ordinator is to work with the Regional Development team to help us get this project off the ground, you will often have catch ups with the team on a one to one basis and support with admin tasks to help us gather and collate information needed to ask people to join a group.

Along with the other staff and volunteers you'll be a core part of the local MDUK community, meeting new people and making a difference to those living with a muscle wasting condition.

(NB, the time commitment required is one day a week, but that can be split over several days.)
