Each year, thousands of runners take part in our Town and Gown 10k runs in Oxford and Cambridge. The series is a huge fundraising event for Muscular Dystrophy UK, raising over £2 million so far to fight against muscle-wasting conditions. We simply couldn’t put on the event without the support of volunteers.
Marketing Research Transcription volunteer
We are looking for a volunteer to come on board for one to two months to support our marketing strategy work with the transcription of interviews and workshops.
Support Group Chair
Our Muscle Groups and support groups bring together those living with muscle-wasting conditions. They're a chance to share key information and advice, join forces on campaigning and importantly, to socialise! Our chairs are friendly community leaders who chair meetings and help to shape the agenda of each session.
Peer Support Volunteer
Want to help others affected by a muscle-wasting condition? Our Peer Support volunteers offer a friendly ear to people looking to chat to someone who can relate to how they're feeling.
Fundraising Research and Mailings Volunteer
Our fundraising research and mailings volunteers help our regional fundraising teams to make sure we have a good understanding and reach within the communities we work in - and it's a great way for volunteers to gain new skills too!
Fundraising Public Speaker
Our public speaker volunteers are confident advocates of the charity, using their communication skills to share key messages about our work.
Our Fundraising Ambassadors represent us in their local community, introducing us to new people and businesses, and getting the word out about the charity.
