Thank you to everyone who put their names forward to win a day of my time as part of National Volunteers’ Week 2015.

After seeing the interest, I decided to pick two organisations to benefit from a day each.

So I’m delighted to announce the winners are:

National Osteoporosis Society

NOSThe National Osteoporosis Society (NOS) is the only UK wide charity dedicated to ending the pain and suffering caused by osteoporosis.

It is estimated that around 3 million people in the UK have osteoporosis. This can lead to bones becoming fragile and breaking easily, resulting in pain and disability.

Much can be done to treat osteoporosis and prevent fractures. The charity is committed to helping people with osteoporosis live the lives they want to lead.

You can find them on Twitter @OsteoporosisSoc and their website is

Once Upon a Doug

DougOnce Upon a Doug is a social enterprise and joint project between business students at Pearson College London & project partners in India (No Nasties & Chetana Vikas).

They are working to empower women in the rural, predominantly cotton farming region of Wardha in India.

I am looking forward to working with both organisations and will be in touch.
