MRF Membership Fundraising Assistant

I joined Meningitis Research Foundation fresh out of University, having been deeply involved with student charity fundraising society RAG (alongside a degree in Psychology and Zoology- I often forget to mention that bit!). Having spent 6 months working with our student fundraisers on their fundraising for the Kilimanjaro climb, I am now working in the Membership and Support office. I assist our members and supporters with fundraising activities they have organised themselves. This can be anything and everything including cake sales, tough mudder runs, live music events and fundraising in schools.

I enjoy the challenge of such variety, and love to see people achieving so much through their fundraising, although it is often in the wake of terrible experiences of this awful disease.

Whether you have a great idea for a fundraiser or don’t know where to start, I’d love to hear from you and support you with your fundraising.
