I began my journey as a Communications Volunteer with ECHO in January 2021 after researching about charitable organisations to volunteer with.
My passion for volunteering began during my school years in Luxembourg and I was keen on continuing to give back here in London as a university student.
ECHO was just the place for me. I enjoy being able to help the ECHO team out with raising awareness through social media and promoting events and fundraisers.
I have particularly enjoyed helping create new graphics, social media plans and seeing the impact my volunteering has had on ECHO’s reach.
Through my volunteering I have also been able to develop my own practical skills and creating new connections.
If I had to choose just one thing during my experience that remains the most memorable to me, I would have to say all the amazing and inspirational member stories/videos I have the chance to read and publish.
The team at ECHO makes volunteering an amazing experience! Even though it has been a remote role due, to COVID-19, I do feel that I have been able to make an impact and develop relationships with the team.
I cannot wait to continue volunteering with such an amazing organisation and helping raise vital awareness of children with heart conditions.
ECHO relies on volunteers lending their time and skills to help us to continue to be there for families affected by heart conditions.
If you would like to donate your time to ECHO, whether your skills lie in admin, social media, fundraising, helping at events, or something else – reach out to us today to discuss how you can get involved.
