Fundraising Group Coordinator

Empower people to share our stories and raise awareness of Guide Dogs, while raising vital funds at the same time. The role is flexible to suit your availability, skills and interests, allowing you to support a team of like-minded people to come together, and raise awareness by organising activities from book sales to quizzes, and ’make a cuppa count’ to murder mystery events. Be a part of a team that empowers Guide Dogs to help people with sight loss live actively, independently, and well.  

Guide Dogs is here to support you every step of the way and provide any training or support you require. If you would like to get in touch and discuss the role, we can’t wait to hear from you, please contact us on 0345 1430191 email
