I often dress up as ‘Eddie ECHO’ and make the children laugh! I love going along to events and seeing the children smile, helping them do things they wouldn’t normally do or think they could do. It’s really rewarding seeing them enjoying themselves and having lots of fun.
Being a volunteer with ECHO, you get to work as a team and support families and children, showing them that they’re just like other kids and that most heart problems don’t have to be treated as a disability to hold them back. I’ve been doing this for about 6 years and love the chance to make a difference.
