"In the first week I worked with a little girl. When I went back the second week, she came over to me straight away. I thought, 'Aw, that's lovely.' I felt that we'd built up a rapport. In these moments I get a kick out of being a volunteer and hopefully I pass that on to the kids to motivate them.”
After seeing the impact of her support first-hand, Susanne feels confident that her donations and support are helping to transform lives.
"It is a little investment for this country's future, and a way to make a difference to some kids that don't have the same chances as others,” she said.
Each year our work is made possible by the support of over 8,700 volunteers. We were delighted to celebrate our wonderful volunteers during National Volunteer Week this May.
Thank you Susanne – and to all of our donors and volunteers for making our work possible.
