Community Champion Volunteer

  • VO58017


Description

Become a Community Champion and support us in our search for a cure for kidney disease. Raise awareness of kidney disease and the work of Kidney Research UK in your own local community. Fundraise for us by organising and planning events locally.

Who knows their own local community? You! Put your knowledge to good use and help us by providing talks to local community groups such as Rotary Clubs, Church Groups and Businesses to help raise awareness of kidney disease and the work of our charity. We provide the tools, you provide local knowledge, contacts and enthusiasm!

You may also want to arrange local fundraising events to help raise money to go towards our vital research into kidney disease. Anything from a bake stall, car boot sale or race night; let your creativity run wild to help us raise funds.

We may also ask you to attend events on our behalf, representing the charity at cheque collections, events or speaking to the local media.

No experience or knowledge of kidney disease is necessary; just commitment to learn and help us locally. Join the team and play your part in working towards lives free from kidney disease.

Work the hours you want to, no set hours per month. Be as busy as you want to be.
Great and enjoyable opportunity to help make a difference. For further details please contact:
