In October 2014, after reading in the local paper an article about the amazing work of Passion for Learning, I started to volunteer, going in to two schools twice a week and working one to one with up to 6 children. Seeing the wonderful opportunities of the organisation I also offered to volunteer in the office to help with the administration. In June 2016 this role was formalised and I started a part-time role as Office Administrator. My background is Accounting, having gained my CIMA qualification in July 1996, and I have worked in Industry and the Education sector for the last 20 years, so I was very keen to use this experience within such an exciting, caring and fun organisation.
I continue to volunteer in schools as I love this interaction with the children and find it very rewarding as I watch the children develop, grow and become inspired to learn.
With the support of the Steve Morgan Foundation, in June 2020 I was delighted to be appointed to the new post of Business Manager, to help the organisation with our next phase of growth.
