We are looking for Media Volunteers from across the UK to support the charities media coverage during our Ride4OCD fundraiser this August.
Chief executive Ashley Fulwood, charity patron Professor Paul Salkovskis and OCD-UK member Dr Lisa Marnell will cycle 1250 miles from John o'Groats to Lands End, through Scotland, England and Wales, in aid of the charity, raising funds and awareness. Information about the route and the areas they will be cycling through can be found at http://www.ride4ocd.org/route/.
Media Volunteers must have first-hand experience of OCD, as a sufferer or ex-sufferer, and need to feel comfortable talking to journalists either for newspaper features or radio interviews. Sharing your story will help raise awareness about this debilitating illness and educate people about what OCD is really like. It will also help thousands of OCD sufferers by letting them know that they are not alone and that they can get help.
If you are interested in getting involved in this opportunity then please contact our volunteer coordinator Beth Hemus on firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling her 07748 175 753. (Beth only works Monday-Wednesday so may not be able to respond outside of those working days).
