Meet our Newest Member


Nicola Ward – our new Volunteer Communications Officer.


Welcome aboard Nicola, and we hope you have a great time working with us.


The GWO team and Nicola go back some way in the past – so its great to have her with us. Nicola will be responsible for writing up case studies, press releases and liaise with all the media attention we attract and a host of other tasks.


Why has Nicola chosen to work with Giving World Online – well hear it is her own words……


Before I was made redundant earlier this year I worked as a community reporter for the Leicester Mercury.


I first wrote about a local project called Konnect9 that distributed unwanted goods to those in need but I did not know of their plans to set up and the huge impact it could have.


Everyone involved is a winner – businesses with surplus goods sign up, free of charge, advertise their surplus goods to charities, reduce their waste and landfill costs in the process and support the community as a direct result.


Charities sign up free of charge, apply for advertised goods from the company, arrange mutually convenient collection and utilise the surplus goods.


I was astounded that nobody else has come up with the idea as it makes such perfect sense. is a really exciting project that deserves support to help it realise its great potential to really make a simple yet big difference.


That is why I am volunteering to donate time to this project, I really want to help get the message out there.
