LIFE OF A DAY IN THE


SARA & NIGEL CROCKER SECRETARY OF THE GRACE CROCKER FAMILY SUPPORT FOUNDATION (VOLUNTARY)


My husband and I founded the charity in 2011, two years after we lost our daughter Grace. I have always taken on the role of secretary for the charity, which started out very small, but has gradually grown.


I work three days a week teaching, and I allocate a couple of hours on my official non-working days doing my charity secretarial roles.


On a typical day, I deal with e-mails and letters, liaise with our treasurer to update the banking, revise our Facebook page and website and send updates to committee members. However, my priority is to help families who come to us for financial help or advice if they face time in a U.K. hospital with their sick child. So I check e-mails daily and keep in contact with families all the time, making sure we have the necessary details for the committee to approve financial support.


We went through a really busy time at the beginning of 2016, and we helped nine families by April 2016 which means more people are aware of who we are and what we do.


I also respond to donations from small businesses who do things such as dress down days, or large corporations with charitable trust accounts. Schools and individuals also find many ways of raising money for us.
