Huge thank you to our amazing volunteers
June 04, 2021
This Volunteers Week, we want to say a huge thank you to every one of our volunteers who makes a real contribution to helping us support people with M.E.
We are also hugely grateful to our Trustees, who freely give their time, skills, energy and expertise to guide the charity's strategic direction.
Sophia supports our fundraising team to raise funds and awareness.
"When I was at secondary school a good friend of mine was diagnosed with M.E. She missed a lot of school and didn’t feel her illness was well understood. Those with the disease are often unable to shout to ensure their voice is heard. I am a volunteer within the fundraising department at Action for M.E. I find it incredibly fulfilling having the opportunity to support the important work that Action for M.E. undertakes. I have felt thoroughly supported and welcomed by the fundraising team throughout my time volunteering here – thank you."Volunteers of all ages support many areas of our work, including our services for young people.
- Helen, our volunteer Cheers editor, works with young contributors to put this brilliant monthly e-magazine together for our Young People's community.
- Young volunteers moderate our free, friendly forum for those aged 18 and under with M.E.
- Volunteers contribute to writing and proofreading our InterAction membership magazine, and recording InterAction articles for our Soundcloud channel, for those who find it easier to listen, rather than read.
Their hard work and dedication helps improve lives, and support children, young people and adults with M.E. feel less isolated - and we have plans for later this year to develop our volunteering programme so we can reach even more people with M.E.
Thank you all for everything that you do.
