Many of the Studio 24 team have volunteer jobs. Here are some of the things we do when we're not in the office.
It’s Volunteers’ Week! Volunteers’ Week takes place 1-7 June every year and is a chance to celebrate and say thank you for the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK.
I asked some of my colleagues here at Studio 24 about the volunteering they do.
Simon Jones, Managing Director, is a trustee for the Cambridge Film Trust. The Film Trust organises the annual Cambridge Film Festival – one of the highlights of the Cambridge Cultural Calendar.
Ben Challoner, Data and Content Strategist, also volunteers for the Cambridge Film Festival as a reviewer of film submissions.
Emma Lane, Client Services Director, and Julie Moir, Office Manager, volunteer for the Elizabeth Coteman Fund. Emma is a Trustee and Julie is the Treasurer. The mission of the Elizabeth Coteman Fund is to improve survival rates and quality of life for those diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer.
Kate Jones, Client Services Executive, is the Event Manger for the Cherry Hinton Festival. The Festival is an annual, week long community celebration attracting 5000 visitors.
Ian Axton, Creative Director, is a historical re-enactor and camps with his family at Kentwell Hall during their Tudor experience days. Ian talks to school groups and other visitors about life in Tudor times.
Carlos Eriksson, Accessibility Lead Developer, is a volunteer mentor helping more women to join the tech industry.
Volunteers’ Week is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate how the Studio 24 team volunteer their time and skills in so many different ways – for education, community cohesion, health and culture.
