Previously, I have been running the Instagram page @survivingnurse. This is with the intention of connecting with other Nurses and Healthcare Professionals in an online community. Additionally, I understand running a connected Instagram also increases the reach of the blog.
After running the Instagram page for 4 months I began to think about how I could transfer the blogging skills I had learned. Especially since the pandemic began to wane from the News headlines. This is when I had the idea to apply my skills to support a charity that is very close to my heart. This lead me to contact Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity. I applied for a voluntary role of running and content creating for the @YorkshireBTC Instagram page.
Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity is very meaningful to me. This is because in 2017 my stepdad, Dean was diagnosed with a brain tumour. During this time, the support groups and community offered by Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity was invaluable. My Mum, Hilary especially found great support from the group meetings. She has since volunteered regularly and become an Ambassador for the charity. Dean passed away in 2018 and since then, Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity has continued to be a charity I feel very strongly about promoting. I hope to help raise money for this charity. This is because I understand, first hand, the vital work they do.
What I Aim to Achieve
What I aim to achieve in volunteering for Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity is assisting in promoting the charity. I hope to do this by increasing the reach of the Instagram account and supporting Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity Community. This is so they can continue to offer their wonderful support to people and their families, in Yorkshire, who have been diagnosed with a brain tumour.
