All week we are shining a spotlight on just some of our amazing volunteers to celebrate Volunteers Week. In today’s first post, we look at what it’s like to be a Support Group Leader with Vicky Chapman, who recently set up a new support group in Dundee.
This week is volunteers week – and all week we’ll be shining a spotlight on just some of our incredible volunteers. If you want to get involved, please tag us on Twitter @EndometriosisUK using the hashtag #volunteersweek and we'll be sharing your volunteer stories all week.
On 18th May, a group of 11 surgeons and endometriosis specialists will cycle 220 miles in two days to raise money for Endometriosis UK. From London to Newport (where the annual British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE) conference takes place), the cyclists will stop off at least 7 endometriosis centres and finish at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff.
The London EndoMarch is fast approaching and this year, it’s set to be bigger and better than ever before! We sat down with the team who make the entire day possible and asked them what we can expect from 2019’s march, what it’s like organising 500 people and what the day means for the cause.
Why is it important for people to come together for this march?
