Lingen Davies Cancer Fund exists to make a positive difference to lives affected by cancer in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, and Mid Wales. Our charity was launched in 1979 as the Cobalt Appeal; an appeal that raised funds to bring cancer services to Shropshire for the very first time. Since then, we have raised an estimated £20 million, in today’s money, to support local services, and over 85,000 people have benefited from projects we have supported. Our work is focused in three key areas: cancer prevention and early diagnosis, excellent treatment delivered locally, and living well with and beyond cancer.
To support our ambitions, we want to increase and diversify our income, so we are seeking an exceptional Communications and Fundraising Officer to help us to grow our income, develop our social media presence and engage with our fundraising supporters. We are exceptionally lucky to have a strong base of support in our community, and we want to increase the reach, and nurture existing relationships throughout the region.
Our new Communications and Fundraising Officer will be enthusiastic, creative and able to work with people from all walks of life. They will have a genuine interest in using their verbal and written communications skills to help us support people with cancer in our community. They will be collaborative and appreciative of the charity’s history and values as they embrace and develop new projects.
The first priority for this role will be to support our existing supporters, and to strengthen our communications on all social media platforms to gain new supporters. The role will be varied, and will include representing the charity to our supporters in the communities we serve. In current conditions there is a requirement for some working from home.
If you think you can help us make a positive difference to lives affected by cancer in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, and Mid Wales, we would love to hear from you.
