Suzanne has volunteered in Christian Aid’s Belfast office for 20 years.
During that time, she has been involved in many aspects of Christian Aid’s work. On a Thursday, she comes to the office (usually with buns for the staff!) and spends the afternoon filing paperwork, packing envelopes and answering the phones. After 18 years, she continues to volunteer, saying 'I’ve always had an interest in developing countries, especially after visiting Ethiopia and Malawi, and I enjoy volunteering with people who share this interest and passion'.
Suzanne has also helped to organise fundraising events, such as the Strangford Sportive cycle. Having been involved in a cycle event for another charity, she brought the idea to Christian Aid staff and says that the success of the Sportive, and how it has developed over the years, has been a highlight of her time with Christian Aid.
