I have volunteered with the events and marketing team for almost a year and a half now. I help the office team by supporting the planning and promoting of upcoming events. My role as a volunteer is greatly varied and has involved tasks such as; updating what’s on pages to raise event interest and administrative assistance, through to, attending volunteer fairs and preparing goody bags.
I also volunteer at Tŷ Hafan events, helping the set-up, breakdown and running of events. Although, every day as a Tŷ Hafan volunteer has been different!
Volunteering gives me so much. I have gained valuable marketing and events experience which will boost my future career opportunities. I have also met some great people and seen amazing things which I may not have even imagined before. Such as; the colour of the beach after the Porthcawl Rainbow Run or a huge conga around Tŷ Hafan head office to celebrate one of the children’s’ birthday. I think Tŷ Hafan is an amazing place. It’s very warm, welcoming and always has something going on. It is a pleasure to be part of such a fantastic charity and I know my time is supporting a cause valuable to so many people.
