The Year That Changed My Life

The year that changed my life Putting this year into words is almost seemingly impossible. How does one quantify the amount of causes they have visited, the amount of inspirational people they have me...

Week 47 – Maggie’s | NJIB

I can’t think of a better way to round of my last visit with the Nicest Job in Britain than with Maggie’s; spending my week drinking tea, eating cake and talking with cancer patients in the run up...

Week 46 – Disability Snowsport UK | NJIB

Week 27 – St Vincent de Paul | NJIB

I had never heard of St Vincent de Paul before my time on the Nicest Job. I guess there are so many charities in the UK that one can’t know them all, but I am glad I know about them now. Set up ...
