    Speaker

    Medical Detection Dogs

    This opportunity takes place between 28 Oct 2019 and 20 Jun 2020.

    Medical Detection Dogs need a national network of speakers to help promote awareness of the charity and raise funds to support and train our dogs. The role is an important one as often this is the first time that people will have heard about the charity. Speakers also raise much needed funds and encourage others to fundraise in various ways for example by leaving a legacy in their will or organising a fundraising/sponsored event on our behalf. Some frequently asked questions: What type of groups do speakers address? Speakers visit groups such as Lions and Rotary Clubs, Women’s Institutes and Guilds, Brownies and other similar youth groups, schools, etc. How will I know what to talk about? We have produced materials to support anyone speaking on our behalf. We organise ‘Speakers Training Days’ and offer the chance to visit our training centre at Great Horwood. The training sessions include the sharing of ideas, tips on addressing audiences, and up-to-date information, as well as giving you the opportunity to meet other speakers and members of staff. It is possible that regional training sessions could be organised, depending on numbers. How will I keep up to date with relevant information? A newsletter is sent to all voluntary speakers giving up-to-date information and stories to help you keep your talk current and relevant. You will also receive regular puppy updates and charity newsletters. How many talks would you expect me to give? This is entirely up to you! We just ask you to do as many, or as few, talks as you wish that are convenient to you.

    Fundraiser

    Medical Detection Dogs

    This opportunity takes place between 28 Oct 2019 and 20 Jun 2020.

    If you enjoy fundraising and want to make a real difference to the work we do then why not become an active fundraiser for Medical Detection Dogs to support people with life-threatening health conditions. We are looking for people to help us fundraise, by collecting at a local supermarket, taking part in a fun run, or organizing an event. It doesn’t matter how much time you can give – some events are one-offs and others require a greater commitment, but everyone can get involved. Collection Box Co-ordinators If you have very little spare time, but would still like to make a BIG difference to the charity, you could leave collection boxes with local businesses such as vets, petrol stations, chemists, bakeries, newsagents, pubs, hairdressers, garden centres or pet shops. The role of ‘collection box co-ordinator’ includes identifying potential box sites, picking up the boxes when they are full, leaving new boxes in their place and then counting and banking the money for Medical Detection Dogs. Leaflet Distribution We need people to help distribute Medical Detection Dogs literature and put up posters, locally to you; your place of work, local library, garden centre, school, doctor or dentist surgeries. – as many places as possible. If you are happy to identify suitable locations, arrange permission with the owners and deliver supplies of various leaflets and posters please let us know.
