Introducing 'Quickfire Fives'; short Q&As with our staff team members, supporters and others! 

First up we asked Kelly, one of the newest members of the Alopecia UK team, to take a minute out of her day for a Quickfire Five!

1. Kelly, what does a typical day look like for you and what are you currently working on?

My day starts at 8am and I usually start the morning looking over our social media channels or writing a ‘to do list’. I’m lost without a good list! At the moment I’m working on organising some more events and supporting a few projects for the charity. Check the website to see what’s coming up or email me on [email protected] to find out more.

2. What would you say to someone who has recently discovered Alopecia UK?

I can’t get over how welcoming and kind everyone has been since I joined the team. No matter where you are on your alopecia journey, there are thousands of supportive people within our Facebook groups or at our events and support groups that can help. We are not far away if you need an understanding ear.

3. What’s your favourite line from a film?

Well, I am a big fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger films (we all have our quirks) so my favourite quote must be “Get to the chopper!”.

4. What gift are you hoping to receive for Christmas this year?

I am very excited about seeing my family and eating too much of my mum’s famous Christmas dinner. I know will have too many pigs-in-blankets and roast potatoes.

5. What are you most looking forward to in 2020?

I'm working on so many events it's hard to decide what i'm most excited about! Exeter is where i'm hosting my first Regional Roadshow in March so i'm hoping that lots of people join me for that. I hear Alton Towers is one of the highlights of the Alopecia UK calendar so I can't wait to join in the fun! And then i've got fundraising events lined up later in the year too.
