We know how to put the ‘fun’ into fundraising! If you are interested in events to raise money for type 1 diabetes research in Scotland, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01224 248 677.
At the same time as recruiting for the position of JDRF T1 Speakers - Central Scotland, we are recruiting a volunteer who will source talks and speaking opportunities for the T1 Speakers. They will contact groups and organisations to arrange speaking opportunities, liaise with volunteer speaks to confirm bookings and keep a record of all booked talks and outcomes achieved.
We are looking to recruit 20 volunteer speakers who will be trained to speak on behalf of JDRF to new audiences in Central Scotland about your experience of type 1 diabetes and the impact it can have. You will ask for and inspire support of JDRF and help support our work to cure, treat and prevent type 1.
George Heriot’s School in Edinburgh raised £170 for JDRF in December 2013 by putting on their own Great British Bake Off after being approached by pupil Callum Selman.
The Pearson family have raised over £2,000 for JDRF since son Cameron was diagnosed with type 1 in September 2012, entering the Edinburgh Marathon and swimming the Channel, as well as appearing on Kirkcaldy radio.
Karen Denholm, her friends, family and colleagues raised over £4,000 during a weekend of fundraising that included their very own coffee morning and the Walk to Cure Diabetes Central Scotland.
