On Friday, 26 February 2021, Royal Holloway ran a virtual event for Secondary School years 10, 11 and 12 in honour of Rare Disease Day. Our Marketing and Engagement Manager, Blayne, signed up for the speed-dating round and spoke to year 10, 11 and 12 students about Findacure. She only had seven minutes per school to deliver her presentation and rotated between seven virtual classrooms. Blayne recaps her talk here!
Our Projects Coordinator, Philippa, first found Findacure through CharityWorks, a leadership development graduate programme which focuses on the 5 C’s: Conscious, Curious, Challenged, Connected and Change. In this week’s blog, Philippa takes us through what she learnt by completing this 12-month programme. She highlights how her learnings relate to the 5 C’s of the CharityWorks programme.
