There's nothing more rewarding than giving some time to a local charity and where possible utilising the skills you have to benefit them. I have enjoyed dressing up on numerous occasions to have fun, raise awareness and raise funds for worthy causes.
What I am doing in 2017
What I've done in the past
- Abseiled ~ Despite a fear of heights I have abseiled 128ft down Ocean House in St Leonards
- Walked miles ~ For two years I participated in the Night to Remember 10 mile walk under the stars in Eastbourne for Chestnut Tree House
- Walked some more! ~ I walked 16 miles in Sept 2015 to raise money for St Michael's Hospice and Battle Lions (Click this link for more info)
- Stopped drinking ~ I like my glass of red in the evening, so for Dry January this proved a challenge!
For 2 years I was a Trustee for The Sara Lee Trust. I used my skills to benefit this charity, providing my time for free. I set up their Marketing Committee,
coordinated their new CMS website, created and published the new content and introduced them to the delights of social media. I am very proud to have helped this charity to achieve a better online presence. I was sad to hand over the reins at the beginning of 2015.
Do you have a page on your website about your charity work? I would love to know more, so please add some info and link to this page via the comments
