We want to spotlight the incredible team of volunteers we have had as well as the ways in which all of their work has made a difference!
With a small team of just five people, we sincerely appreciate the hard work and dedication of those volunteers who give up their time to support us in the office with admin, fundraising and communications tasks.
One of our volunteers this year is Danielle who joined us for eight weeks during the summer all the way from California, USA. Danielle shares what it is like to volunteer with our Fundraising and Communications team:
“My favourite part of my entire experience of volunteering here at Theodora is coming in and knowing that I will be working with a team that is super passionate about their work! It is truly incredible to see such a small team do so much amazing work to bring the Giggle Doctor’s impact to thousands of children across the UK.
I genuinely admire everyone’s passion, tenacity, kind soul and big heart. The team actively works to make me feel included and welcomed in every way possible, and I appreciate it so much! I find my experience incredibly rewarding and valuable because I have some power in shaping my own role within this charity and I know that I will be supported by Alice and the rest of the team.
I have been given many opportunities to learn about the inner workings of a small charity and the different roles needed to run a charity, to apply the skills and knowledge I have developed in previous experiences, and to gain an understanding about my own personal and professional goals.
I know that when I leave soon, I will be leaving with not only the invaluable knowledge and skills I have gained from my time here but also a stronger sense of what I want to do once I graduate from university.”
Once again, we want to say thank you to all of our amazing volunteers who help to make our work possible.
