Teaching children about medicine - National Science Week
  • Co-founder and co-ordinator of Voluntary care project in Romanian Orphanages (’02-05)

    I helped to establish this project whilst at Secondary School (King Edward VI School, Southampton).
    With the help of students and staff, we have raised much needed funds for the orphanage.
    In addition, every year a big group of King Edward's pupils and staff travel to Romania to provide help and support.
    Activities range from taking the children on outings and supporting staff to helping make the building more attractive for the children, through painting and decorating.
