Meet the Volunteers

Volunteers are the life blood of Break - read their stories

Meet Mel Seton - Mel has been volunteering at fundraising events for a few years now.

Beaking Clays 16-14

Here is what she has to say:-

"The best thing about volunteering for Break is the feelgood factor you get knowing that what you are doing is going to benefit others. You get to make great new friends. I volunteered at all of Break's major events last year - from Hunny Bell Cross Country to Breaking Clays, GoGoDragons! to the Grand Norwich Duck Race and auction - and loved every second of it. I'm looking forward to another fun filled year!"

Meet Jill Watkinson - Jill is well known in Norfolk for her work at the Space, starting the Nofolk Tweetup and collecting biscuits, teas and coffee to supply the Big C Centre based at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital.

Beaking Clays 16-34

Here is what she has to say:-

"I love the vision of Break: 'To ensure children, young people and families reach their full potential and shape their own futures in a safe and creative environment' and if I can help for a few hours - by packing Christmas hampers, counting clays, washing ducks after a duck race, looking after dragons, sponsoring a gorilla, dragon or duck - and if in some small way that helps a child, young person or family in Norfolk, then I am delighted to be able to do it.

What I love about helping at events is that the Break team make it fun and enjoyable and a great time is had by all the volunteers working together alongside the team. There is a great variety of events - there really is something for everyone to get involved in - whether for a few hours, a day or on a more regular basis."

Meet Catherine Wright - Catherine was a stallwaught GoGoDragons! volunteer - we think it helped as she absolutely loved them!

Here is what she has to say:-

"The reason I enjoyed volunteering for Break in 2015 was because I had so much fun helping with the 'last chance to see' at the GoGoGorillas! in 2013. When I found out that Norwich would be hosting 84 GoGoDragons! I knew I would love to help in any way so I emailed the Break team. Martin and Danielle got in touch and asked if I would mind helping with the GoGoDragons! pop-up shop and I jumped at the chance, as I could chat to everyone interested in the dragons and it was great fun to find out everyone's favourite dragons or help people find them, as I had completed the trail a few times with my children and sister."


We couldn't possibly provide the support to local children, young people and their families without the support of our amazing volunteers.

We always need volunteers for our events, so if you are interested please contact danielle.gravestock@break-charity.org or phone 01603 670108.
