Who I Volunteer With
I volunteer with a variety of organisations in different capacities. For some, I volunteer remotely and for others it's physical graft - I really don't mind getting my hands dirty! All are rewarding, and all are great causes. I love to experience new things, so if you want me to volunteer with you, get in touch! Below are a selection of my roles, past and present...
Charity Excellence Framework
Brand and Marketing Support
Charity Excellence Framework is an amazing free and easy-to-use tool for charities which provides a framework to help with due diligence and compliance. It also has the largest database of funders you'll find anywhere - so is a must for all charities to sign-up to. I work with the founder Ian McLintock and support him on his marketing, branding and his YouTube channel.
Since July 2020
Shout 85258 is a free, confidential, 24/7 text messaging support service for anyone who is struggling to cope. I am a trained volunteer, at the other end of the text message and am there to listen when texters need someone to talk to. It is an amazing service, for anyone who needs someone to listen to them.
Since October 2020
The Transforming Autism Project
The Transforming Autism Project works to support parents to transform the lives of their autistic children by helping them to truly understand the needs they are not able to clearly express. As the mother of a son with autism, this is a really special project as it helps promote early diagnosis to help children with autism thrive. I am currently heading up their fundraising programme.
Cricket Without Boundaries
Digital Marketing Support
CWB is a global, volunteer-run organisation which works with partners around the world to grow the game of cricket, while using the sport as a platform for health education and social change. I'm a huge cricket fan and have been helping CWB by managing their LinkedIn page.
Since January 2020

In the summer of 2019, I had an amazing time volunteering at the Cricket World Cup. I was on the supporter services team, working at the Oval and in the
