Before coming to university to study BA (Hons) Sociology, Kate was an active volunteer in Girlguiding in Leicestershire.
Throughout her time at Coventry University, Kate has continued to volunteer as a Brownie leader but has also grown her volunteering experiences.
During her second year, Kate regularly took part in Make A Difference Days (MADD) organised by the university, helping at a local food and clothes bank.
After taking part in these experiences Kate became a member of the student volunteer team within the student union, working with an exceptional group of students to put on events and fundraise for charities.
Kate has recently won a Gold Leadership Award at the Coventry University Student’s Union Awards 2020 and has decided she would like to pursue a career in the charity sector.
