So summer is finally over and so is my time in the HealthProm office. I have really enjoyed my time working with the charity, it was slightly crazy at times and I have to say I loved being able to get stuck in, in all the different possible areas.
Organising this years cycle ride has been one of my main jobs, and as much as I want to beat last year’s fundraising (which we will of course!) I am more thrilled that everyone enjoyed the day. Even though the sun shined down on us, perhaps a little too much(!) everything went very smoothly.
The route we took went through the Lea valley which was gorgeous, it was lovely to see people out on their little boats and barges on the canal. I certainly wished I was swimming as opposed to cycling at times. The ride was raising funds for our project in Tajikistan, helping vulnerable children to stay with their families, keeping them out of institutions and supporting their development. Everyone has done a great job with their fundraising and the money is still coming in, so well done to everyone for all their efforts!
As for me, I am now a student once more, but I will miss the HP office and want to say thank you to everyone there for making me so welcome. I think the near future will be an exciting time for the charity and I would definitely like to stay in touch!
