Sinéad Davoren – Fundraising and Events Volunteer
Meet our Star Supporter, Sinéad Davoren. Sinead is not only a regular donor, but she also lends her skills and talents to support CCC at events and with fundraising campaigns. She has supported us with our newsletter mail outs, our BBC Radio 4 Charity appeal and at key events, such as our Thames Walk, often taking annual leave to do so – thank you Sinéad!
“Personally, I’ve been in love with Colombia since I travelled around South America in 2013 and was struck by the beauty of the country and the people I encountered.
Thereafter followed many attempts to immerse myself in Colombian culture in London, such as learning Spanish and salsa - something that doesn’t come naturally to an Irish girl!
My boyfriend (who is Colombian, from Bogotá) and I were looking for a Colombian charity to support in London. Google helpfully suggested Children Change Colombia, and we’re very glad it did!
The first event we participated in was the Thames Walk 2018. He ran the whole route whilst I strolled leisurely through Richmond Park meeting lots of interesting people from the UK and Colombia.
Whilst everyone had their own unique reason for supporting the charity, it’s a great feeling being part of a London community, led by a committed team at CCC, with the same love for Colombia and a common goal of improving the lives of children there.
We returned to do the Thames Walk in 2019 and I have also helped out in the office on a couple of occasions, helping to make sure supporters got their Christmas appeal on time and also assisting in the run up to the Thames Walk 2019.
There are so many fun ways to support the charity. We’ve been to a World Cup party, a reggaeton party and an art tour at the Tate (highly recommended).”
Volunteers like Sinéad and her boyfriend are key members of our CCC community and the driving force behind our events fundraising success. We are delighted that Sinéad found us online and have loved having her in the office to support us with fundraising and communications tasks. So a BIG thank you to Sinéad for donating her time and skills to CCC, we are all so grateful for your support!
