Get online and help promote good cause

ARE you a dab hand at social networking sites?

A good cause that supports people with a painful genetic condition needs someone to promote its work through the internet.

DEBRA is a national charity that helps individuals and families affected by epidermolysis bullosa – a condition that causes the skin to blister and shear.

The right person, who must be aged 13 or over, will promote the charity’s key messages through online sites like Facebook.

For those who are not whizz kids on the computer there are a range of other hands-on opportunities up for grabs.

Someone to organise local events and activities to raise awareness of the good cause is required.

Times are flexible to suit the volunteer who must be aged 13 or over.

A helper who can work within a team to organise fundraising events using their own local networks is also needed.

The right person will help raise the charity’s profile.

If you can connect with young people, then you could be the perfect person to speak to youngsters about epidermolysis bullosa.

The volunteer must be aged 16 or over and will raise awareness of DEBRA amongst children and young people by organising talks and presentations.

> Donations of goodies are needed to help bring in cash for a good cause.
