How did you find out about HLH?
I found out about HLH through my family and friends who were already involved with the charity and spoke highly of the whole team and the work they carried out. When I heard about this brilliant work they did, I knew that I wanted to help out in any way that I could. I got in contact with Dr Sanjiv Nichani, one of the founders, who referred me to Rajee, our Marketing Consultant. They were all very welcoming and I easily fitted in with the rest of the team.
What kind of activities have you been involved in?
I’ve been involved in a variety of different activities within the charity. I work very closely with the lead for out collection box campaign to promote our campaign to local businesses. My role is to then prepare the packs for all the new businesses that sign up with us and keep in touch with them to make sure everything is going well!
I also helped with the Navratri event that ran over 11 nights. My role was to sell raffle tickets to the members of the community and raise word about the charity!
What are you achieving from your work with HLH?
I have to say that I’ve gained a lot from volunteering with HLH. Not only have I met so many wonderful new people, but I’ve also gained many new skills. It’s great for building your confidence and communication skills. Working with Rajee has also improved my organisational and problem solving skills.
Volunteering with HLH is certainly very rewarding and I’m sure that it’ll be very helpful for me when I go to university and
I look forward to using my skills in a different context.
