Our Patrons

Patrons play a key role in raising awareness for the charity by supporting and lending their name to our work.

  • They believe in our charity’s aims, our vision and mission
  • They make themselves available to support our work
  • As opportunities arise, they help to generate awareness of the charity

The Muscle Help Foundation is a small charity – Patrons can make a big difference by helping to amplify our cause. If you know of a potential person whom you think might make an excellent Patron, please contact our founder and CEO Michael McGrath.
