Charity Rep Introductions

A little bit about the Ragabonds. A sort of "who we are and what we are doing" thing.

Most of you already know me from joining 'Bonds post Leicester RAG but thought I'd introduce myself on here as the new Community Fundraiser for Marie Curie Cancer Care in Cheshire & North Staffs.

If you fancy a permit up this way just drop me a line and I'll do my best to sort you out.

Hi Everyone,

I used to be the RAG chair for York St John so know the Ragabonds from back then.

I currently work for York Mind.... in York and we might be looking at putting together some raids in York in the future so was hoping to advertise them on here.

Also wanted to general have a chit chat charity and that :D

Hi there,
I'm Heather and I'm Oxfam's community fundraiser for East Anglia. I've just moved here and discovered there aren't many RAG's around. Before I was based in the North and did loads of work with RAG's so I want to keep that going.

How do I get you guys on board for a raid?

Is it the cause?
Oxfam has recently been ranked the 3rd top NGO in the world! We work with others, such as local communities and organisations around the world, to overcome global poverty and suffering. We respond to emergencies by providing life saving aid, we do development work around the world to help people out of poverty, and we campaign to change the root causes of poverty.
What more could you want?

Or is it the location that persuades you?
I've just moved to Cambridge and it is beautiful, imagine a few hours collecting outside the incredible Kings College, then taking a break and going for a punt along the river. Really easy to get to from London/South/East Coast.

Please get back to me with any questions about Oxfam or what we can do together, especially anyone interested who lives in East Anglia as there are all sorts of exciting things I can offer!

Thank you,
Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to overcome poverty and suffering. We need your help.

Heather Mack, community fundraiser for East Anglia.
Give me a call on 07795335391 if you are interested in getting involved in East Anglia.

Hi all,

I used to be a MUSCA/UMIST Raggie and then went on to work for Barnardo's and Marie Curie as a Community Fundraiser. I have now found a happy home at Ovarian Cancer Action, still as a Community Fundraiser.

We're a relatively small charity having only 10 people in the office. However, we don't class as a small charity as we bring in lots of money and have broken the financial threshold of "small" :D

Ovarian cancer is not the most common cancer amongst women. However, it is the biggest gynaecological killer. As there isn't a screening process for ovarian cancer as there is for cervical cancer, most women are diagnosed far too late, which lowers their chance of survival drastically. It is not, however, a silent killer as it has been known for many years. There are symptoms but they are so similar to many other innocuous diseases that they are frequently mis-diagnosed, or missed altogether.

We fund the only dedicated ovarian cancer research centre in the UK, and the largest centre in Europe and are fighting to change the prognosis of ovarian cancer from a terminal illness to a manageable disease.

I hope we see a lot of you!

Hi All

I'm Alice from The Eve Appeal; we are quite a small charity and this is our first time branching out into the world of RAGs so this is pretty exciting for us.

Everyday 50 women are diagnosed and 20 will die from a gynaecological cancer and The Eve Appeal is the only national UK charity dedicated to funding world-class research and raising awareness of all five gynaecological cancers.

I look forward to speaking to all of you and if you have any questions about what we do or how you might be able to get involved then just get in touch!
