Blog Introducing our first FPL Community Champion

Introducing our first FPL Community Champion

by Chris | Charities, Community Champions

We were blown away to hear from so many of you about how you volunteer that we have decided to start a community champion programme.

To kick it off we are crowning FPL member Tracey, as our first community champion. Congratulations Tracey! Tracey volunteers at a wonderful charity called Ruddi’s Retreat. Here is a little bit about them:

What do they do?

Ruddi’s Retreat is a small charity based in Huddersfield that provides families with children who are suffering from severe illnesses or bereavement with a free caravan holiday.
They currently have two caravans, which they loan out to families for free and are currently fundraising to build a specially adapted lodge that could be equipped to further accommodate families in need. If you would like to donate, head over to their JustGiving page.

“The feedback we get from the families we help, gives us all the inspiration we need.  To know you are assisting others get some valuable, irreplaceable family time is all the thanks we will ever need.”– Tracey

What does Tracey do for them?

Tracey is the treasurer for the charity; taking care of their books and finances and ensuring donations are dealt with efficiently. She also helps out at lots of their fundraising events. They are always looking for more volunteers to help them out with the events they run. If you’re nearby and want to get involved check out RuddisRetreat.org

“I volunteer and assist at as many charity events as possible, and love meeting people and giving information about the charity and spreading the word about the good work we do.” –Tracey

We hope you will all agree that Ruddi’s Retreat is an amazing cause, so let’s all congratulate Tracey on being our first ever community champion. Do you volunteer? You could be our next community champion! We want to hear more of your volunteer stories, keep them coming!
