Thank you so much to our newest volunteer, Tom, who spent several hours over his Christmas break reviewing our digital marketing so that we can build on what we’re doing and reach even more of the people who need us in 2021. Tom says: "I'm a communications professional based in Carlisle and really happy to be supporting CADAS. I started a new job back in December and my colleague Diane told me about the Cumbria Exchange website where you can find a wide range of opportunities to volunteer locally. I spotted CADAS needed a little help and was more than happy to volunteer, it's great to support a local charity that does so much for people across the county. I'm looking forward to continuing to volunteer in 2021."

THANK YOU, TOM!
