North England and East Midlands

Get in touch with your local Regional Development Manager, Susanne Driffield.

Susanne is the newest member of our regional development team having joined us in June 2019. Susanne’s background is in estate agency and whilst she hasn’t had previous experience working in the charity sector, she has been fundraising for Muscular Dystrophy UK for over 7 years.

Susanne is passionate about fundraising for Muscular Dystrophy UK as her 11-year-old son is affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy so she knows first-hand how important it is to raise funds for both research and to ensure the best possible care is available for people affected by muscle-wasting conditions.

If you would like to get involved in fundraising for Muscular Dystrophy UK then please contact Susanne who will be happy to support you on your fundraising journey.
