Vodafone Make A ‘World Of Difference’

20 January 2010

Sail 4 Cancer has been awarded a grant from the ‘World of Difference‘ scheme run by Vodafone which will pay for an additional member of staff for two months. Danielle Auld who has been volunteering at Sail 4 Cancer since last summer, applied for the sponsorship from The Vodafone Foundation after seeing an article about the scheme in the local newspaper. Danielle who was chosen as one of the winners from over 1,000 applicants will be working with the charity for the next two months.

Graham Precey, Chairman at Sail 4 Cancer said:

“This is a tremendous boost for Sail 4 Cancer.  It is great to see large corporates like Vodafone making a real difference at grass roots level. By helping local charities to their offices worldwide, Vodafone is in turn helping the local communities in those regions.  We cannot thank them enough.”

Whilst at Sail 4 Cancer, Danielle will be responsible for introducing a new Customer Relationship Management system to increase the charity’s ability to target campaigns and track its partners more effectively.  Sail 4 Cancer felt that this would be a good use of the time which can be invested as it is a project that will continue to bring benefit long after the placement is over.

Danielle will be blogging, her way through her placement so if you would like to follow her progress or to find out what it is really like working at Sail 4 Cancer please visit this website regularly!
