Making Memories… Giving Hope

#12VolunteersOfChristmas: Meet Will!


In the run-up to our Christmas breaks, we'll be introducing you to the 12 volunteers who are generously giving up their Christmas to help out at CHICKS...

Since 2011, Will has volunteered on an impressive 16 breaks! He’s coming to volunteer at this year’s Christmas break at Coastal because: “Christmas has always been a very special time in my family, an opportunity to come together as a family and spend time with each other…I feel it is very important for everyone to be able to experience that family atmosphere, regardless of their situation.”

Will spent Christmas at CHICKS in 2012, and says his favourite memory was when a child opened their Christmas present: “He was simply struck dumb with his present [a football strip], stating ‘how did Santa know I liked football?’ not knowing that CHICKS had found that out beforehand.”

Will is one of our team of 12 volunteers who will be making sure the children have a magical time this Christmas - there's lots planned including trips to the pantomime, toboganning and walks on the beach!
