Holly helps out with the People at Development Team at Head Office. She does a variety of tasks, from advertising, digital and administration and has been volunteering with us for around eighteen months.
“I have literally gained everything by volunteering at Tenovus Cancer Care. Is it too cheesy to say it’s the best decision I ever made? I’ve recently been accepted in a work and learn scheme where I’ll be studying towards a HR Management Master’s degree and I don’t believe I would have got the position if not for Tenovus Cancer Care. Volunteering here has opened my eyes to new possibilities as well as boosting my CV and making myself more attractive to employers.
“I’ve loved the tasks I’ve been set each time I come in to help. I even love doing hands-on, repetitive work such as sorting letters and making badges. I find it therapeutic! And it’s good to get away from Uni and my part-time job for a bit. Assisting with the social media has been amazing, and it’s an honour promoting the charity in blog posts.
“I’ve met some wonderful people here that you certainly wouldn’t find everywhere. Every single person at Tenovus Cancer Care is lovely. They all just want to see you succeed and you can always have a great chat and catch up.
“Lastly, helping at a cancer charity has really opened my eyes to how many people are affected by cancer. Some of the stories I’ve heard are so emotional, but seeing the support and love from all different people involved at Tenovus Cancer Care really warms your heart. You can see how much the charity means to people.
“Volunteering for Tenovus Cancer Care has given me more confidence and more motivation. You'll also meet the nicest people, because you're all there to do something wonderful!”
