A fond farewell to Eleanor


Our wonderful Arts & Business Intern finishes this week after her 9 month placement. A huge thank you to Eleanor for all your hard work and good luck in your new role!

“I can’t believe that I’m writing my final blog post for my internship at The Aloud Charity, before I move on to my next fundraising role!

It has been an amazing, unforgettable and jam-packed 8 months; I’m so grateful for how varied and interesting my role has been. I’ve written applications to support corporate partnerships (CultureStep), and applications to a huge variety of trusts (18 in total), as well as Arts Council Wales and the Cardiff Life Awards.  I planned and presented a crowdfunding campaign to raise £10,000, and learnt lots about how to make the most of individual giving, community fundraising, digital marketing and design.

And having reached the end of my placement, I’m proud to know that I’ve helped raise money to support such an important and life-changing cause.

Along the way I’ve also made new friends, and expanded my networks and horizons through training courses, covering Disability and Equality, to E-Commerce, Arts & Health and Facebook Marketing.

Whilst I’m of course sad to be leaving, I know I will keep in touch with everybody, and feel so grateful knowing that the training I’ve had will stand me in great stead for the future.

So thank you so much to everybody at The Aloud Charity, Arts & Business Cymru and my wonderful mentors for this AMAZING opportunity!

(And to anybody reading this that is considering applying to the programme – I say just go for it, you won’t regret anything!!)”
