You will lead our special events (concerts, Balls, golf days for instance) and third-party challenge events, and will be instrumental in delivering our Christmas programme of activities, and the development of our work with community groups and businesses.  You will ensure activities are strategically planned and will be conversant and compliant with current and future fundraising legislation and codes of conduct. The use of the database for effective record-keeping, supporter acknowledgements and stewardship will be essential for success.

Key to the role is harnessing the passion of our community, motivating and inspiring them to maximise support.  You will be a fantastic ambassador.
