How many camps have you attended?

Three.

Why do you volunteer for Feel the Magic®?

I lost my father when I was 19, and although I was a lot older than a lot of the kids that come to Camp, I experienced all of the same things these kids experience. When I found out about the Camp, I knew it something I 100% wanted to be a part of.

What is your favourite season and why?

Spring, because the first bits of hope start to come through.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about grief?

There is no set timetable for grieving.

What inspires you about our campers?

Their bravery.

A final note from Francesca:

Volunteering at Camp Magic is honestly one of the best things I’ve done in my life, and I would encourage anyone who is even slightly curious to give it a go.
