Nicola Quirk

Sixth Form Volunteer

Nicola began her journey with CDSSG when she was a sixth form student and raised money for our charity with her peers. After completing her A levels, Nicola contacted us to ask about volunteering. Obviously we snapped her up! Nicola supported us with office tasks, fundraising and events on a weekly basis. We were delighted for Nicola when she applied for her first paid position in the voluntary sector and was offered the job on the spot.
