Volunteer Vault #19

Today we hear from Maddy (below right), who tells us more about her catch ups with Lauren (below left).

- How long have you been volunteering with Gig Buddies?

Since August 2019, so 4.5 years now.

- Is Gig Buddies your first volunteering role?

No it's not. Before Gig Buddies I was an advocate for Sydney Cancer Advocate Network (Cancer Council), advocating for policies, programs and funding to support those in need. I did this for a few years.

- Why do you volunteer with Gig Buddies?

I volunteered with Gig Buddies because I wanted to make some friends to have fun with and go out with! 

- How would you describe your volunteering experience with Gig Buddies?

Amazing! Lauren is one of my closest friends and I am so grateful for our friendship. We have shared some of the best times together and she brings so much joy to my life, and I can't forget to mention all the laughs we've had together as well.

Lauren also makes me a better person, which I am so grateful for. She's also such an inspiration with everything she does in her life, especially with her rowing, cross fit and work.

- Tell us about some of the highlights from your time volunteering with Gig Buddies?


All our dinners out together and the Gig Buddies parties - we have so much fun, talking, laughing and dancing!

Lauren also introduced me to one of her best friends Ellie (centre right, above) and her buddy Toyah (right, above) who are now my close friends as well, and the four of us have the best time together either at dinner, at picnics or the Gig Buddies parties! 

- What would you say to someone reading this who is thinking about volunteering with Gig Buddies?

Just do it! You won't regret it. You are likely to meet one of your new closest friends, and you guys will have so much fun together!
