I have worked in PR, events & copywriting for over a decade. In my field, I'm extremely strong in connecting people, pitching ideas to clients and journalists, and putting together strategies. I have volunteered with Crisis, the Elizabeth Fitzroy Foundation and raised money running half marathons for Bowel Cancer UK. I'm interested in travel, hiking, tennis, film, theatre and mentoring. I am looking to volunteer as I am at a stage in my life where I want to give back to others and play a bigger part in my community. As I work for myself, I have the time to offer to others. I have taken a mentoring role in the past 5 years of my career, and would like to continue to do so outside of work.
I am looking to volunteer with elderly people or a youth organisation. I would like to try a digital buddy or befriending scheme, where I feel I can help brighten someone's everyday or help mentor the next generation. If someone is lonely or lost, I would like to be a listening ear. I would do something that has a positive impact on other peoples' lives.
