NH: It has been such a challenge to create a routine in lockdown. I try to hold off from looking at emails until I have had breakfast and taken a walk. Then the day will usually start by checking in on any news updates that impact upon our beneficiaries ability to secure an early diagnosis or impact upon the delivery of our services. I check in with the team most mornings – as a small charity we have tried as much as possible to maintain a lot of contact, so that we can collaborate and not be too isolated whilst working from home.
In Breast Cancer Awareness Month I spend some time exploring how we can raise more awareness during this key period – this might include exploring opportunities to incorporate our messaging with brand partners. I would also check in with our fundraising team to discuss the progress of any key fundraising activities and partnerships.
These activities really have been critical in allowing our charity to survive during lockdown and we really have had to innovate to try and plug the funding gap from postponed events this year.
I unwind in the evening by doing yoga, having dinner, and playing with my one year old Ted. And of course I’m prompted to check my boobs in the shower after a long day with one of our CoppaFeel! shower stickers.
