I am Kidscan’s Office Assistant and I joined in January 2020 after having my son. Prior to having a baby, I worked in hospitality and administration.
When I was 7 months pregnant, my Mum was given a terminal cancer diagnosis. Having a child and losing my mum to cancer in a very short period of time, really made me want to work for a cancer charity. Kidscan appealed to me as they are trying to find cures as well as improve the side effects for children - who haven't even lived most of their lives yet. This felt like a very worthwhile cause that I wanted to be a part of.
I deal with the administration for the Kidscan awards, the charity's expenditure and our income. I'm responsible for gathering the donation data on a weekly basis, keeping the database up to date and letting everyone know about the recent donations. People can contact with any queries about this on email Sarah.W@kidscan.org.uk
