Getting out and about in the community is a vital part to raising both funds and awareness for the charity and we simply can’t have the reach we need without volunteers!
Why volunteer as a Fundraising Public Speaker?
If you want to meet new people in your community and take on a flexible volunteering opportunity, then this may be just the volunteering opportunity for you. You'll also be raising vital awareness about our work and the experiences of those living with muscle-wasting conditions.

- Finding opportunities to exchange contact details and develop relationships
- Feeding back to the Regional Development Manager on events, key individuals and any actions to be followed up
Ad-hoc and flexible!
