Meet Our New Intern


My name is Poppy and I have recently joined the fundraising and communications team for the DREAMBUILDING project. I am here for just 8 weeks over the summer as an Intern, before I return to university for my final year of study.

I study marketing at the University of Chichester, and have just finished my second year. I chose to participate in a summer internship to broaden my knowledge and gain work experience within the sector. As I am already local to the area, I know a lot about St Wilfrid’s Hospice and was encouraged to fundraise for the charity through my years at school and college; I have also witnessed some of the amazing work that they do for our community. Therefore I knew this was the perfect role for me as I would love to help with ensuring that St Wilfrid’s Hospice can continue with their amazing work.

I was delighted to have been offered this post and so far it has provided me with valuable experiences. I have joined the team at the most perfect time as it is currently a very exciting time for the DREAMBUILDING project with lots happening such as:

  • The DREAMBUILDING has started the building stage!
  • Lots of events happening over the summer
  • The community being more involved than ever
  • Planning exciting projects for 2018!

The DREAMBUILDING team are extremely dedicated and are lovely to work with and I am looking forward to see what the following weeks here will bring! Although I am based in Terminus road, you may catch me at the Hospice or even one of our DREAMBUILDING events!
