Reflection is something many people will have had time to do during these last six months as life has changed for us all in some way. Everyone has a story and whether this is from childhood or as an adult, that story is part of who they are.
Since joining A Way Out this month, I have told my own story to colleagues about where my passion and driving force comes from and why community fundraising is so important to me. I went back to myself aged 15, and reflected upon what life would have looked like for me if I had not by chance received a single leaflet from a charity at a gala day which became my lifeline.
Now as A Way Out’s Community Fundraising Co-ordinator I’m excited to be that person who promotes the work they do and fundraises to keep the organisation’s vital services running. I am also thrilled to be recruiting a team of community fundraising volunteers to help me do it.
The global pandemic has actively demonstrated how caring a community is when they come together, and it also means that A Way Out’s services are needed more now than ever to support vulnerable women, young people and families who have suffered hardship during the last six months.
