Kayte Wall

Office Administrator

 

Kayte discovered fly2help when she joined the running group Run2Help and loved what the charity did so initially became a keen volunteer. From there her skills and caring attitude were recognised and she has become a valuable member of the team, helping out on a regular basis and making sure that the behind the scenes runs smoothly. Kayte’s contribution and help in planning Air Smiles Days and Aim High means we can commit more time to delivering and planning new programmes. She works in the office on her days off from university where she is studying Animal Behaviour and Welfare. Kayte loves being part of fly2help because she understands the importance of Aim High and sees the difference the Aim High week makes for the students and how much it can help them in their career choices. She also loves the impact our Air Smiles Days have on our beneficiaries and, after volunteering on the days and preparing the photobooks for the families after the day, really understands the value and long term impact of what we do
