Christmas Superstars: Meet Rory!


Meet our Christmas volunteers!

In the run up to our Christmas break, we'll be introducing you to the six superstar volunteers who will spending the festive at CHICKS this year. First up, meet Rory! 

Rory has volunteered on four CHICKS breaks in the last two years, and his favourite thing about CHICKS is witnessing the effect on the children: “Seeing shy, timid kids grow in confidence and just enjoy the week for what it is. CHICKS sets the perfect environment for this and it never gets old.”

Explaining why he wanted to volunteer at Christmas specifically, Rory said, “Having met children on previous breaks, many hadn't even climbed a tree before, so it wouldn't surprise me if they haven't had a proper Christmas either. With social media and films nowadays it's so easy to see that 'perfect Christmas' and for so many it's simply out of reach in their circumstances”.

This year, our Christmas break has been generously sponsored by Ginsters. But we are already booking children onto our 2017 breaks, and we really need your help. Support us here.
