Volunteering at Kit Tarka Foundation
Carol and Paul
What volunteer work do you do?
Our part in volunteering with Kit Tarka Foundation is Carol researching to find out who the Head of Midwifery is for each NHS trust in the country and receiving the orders online for posters, postcards, wallet cards and buggy tags. We mustn’t forget the lovely range of Christmas cards and new baby cards Kit Tarka Foundation also do, which we also receive the orders for. Paul packs the orders up and off they go to the post office.
Why do you volunteer for Kit Tarka Foundation?
We became aware of Kit Tarka Foundation and met Sarah and James through my brother. Having lost babies ourselves, but for different reasons, we thought this would be a great charity to help. We had not realised that so many parents were unaware of neonatal herpes and many are so scared to say NO to kisses for their babies.
What do you like about and gain from volunteering?
We had decided when we retired we would do some volunteering. It is a great feeling being part of helping a charity that is working so hard to raise awareness to help babies and parents from suffering the way many parents and babies unfortunately already have. It’s so important to get the information out to the world.
What would you say to someone considering volunteering for Kit Tarka Foundation?
If someone was thinking of volunteering for Kit Tarka Foundation we would say go for it. Sarah is great to work for, supportive and informative. We are given everything we need from Sarah, to do our job well. Everyone works as a team to build this charity and get the information out to people.
