Ryan Fox was recently enjoying travelling the world until the COVID-19 cut his adventures short. Since returning from Asia to Romford, he’s been voluntarily offering his marketing skills to Saint Francis Hospice. ‘Travelling wasn’t cheap, so while I can’t make a huge donation to the Hospice financially, I can give my time,’ he said.
Ryan is a 29-year-old digital optimisation specialist. He improves the performance of websites and makes them more user-friendly through analytics. As everyone adapts the life indoors, Ryan has noted a significant difference on how people use the Hospice’s site and the internet as a whole.
‘It’s interesting to see how people’s online patterns have shifted since the lockdown, there’s been an enormous boost in people wanting to support the Hospice through the pandemic. It’s great to see the community coming together’ Ryan revealed.
Ryan’s impressive CV boasts household names such as Eurostar, Channel Four, the BBC, Economist, and Which? yet Saint Francis Hospice will be the first charity to appear alongside them. ‘It’s an incredible feeling to know that I’ve made an impact and helped people,’ he said. ‘Volunteering at the Hospice will also give me more confidence to go into my next role.’
If you feel that you can also make a difference to Saint Francis Hospice’s patients and their families by volunteering, then the Hospice would love to hear from you at email@example.com or on 01708 758614.
