I would like to introduce myself as Revive MS Support’s new Trust Fundraiser. I am delighted to join the team and will be based at the Maryhill Centre on a part-time basis. Since starting here a few weeks ago, I have become very aware of not only the vast range of services Revive have to offer, but how dedicated the staff are in the work that they do showing true professionalism and working effortlessly to help and support their clients.
I have had nearly ten years’ experience working as a Trust Fundraiser for two children’s charities, and in that time have seen many changes in the fundraising industry due to today’s financial climate. The increased competition between charitable organisations applying for funding makes our job as fundraisers even harder! I am however looking forward to and am ready for raising both awareness and funds for such a wonderful organisation helping people living with Multiple Sclerosis.
My first task at Revive MS Support is to raise funds to replace our current vehicle which is used to support the work at our five Outreach Centres. At present I have approached ten Charitable Trusts for their financial support and hope to hear if we have been successful next month, we will keep you posted!
Thank you to everyone who have made me feel so welcome. :)
