Victoria Poole - South Somerset

Victoria has recently moved to St. Margaret's Fundraising Team after working for St. Margaret's Retail Team. She has been a volunteer for St. Margaret's Hospice since she was a teenager, when she helped in the shops and at fundraising events. After completing a History and Politics degree at the University of Sheffield, she took up a temporary position in the St. Margaret's Children's Shop in Taunton, before moving to a permanent position as Manager of the Wiveliscombe shop.

Victoria said "I thoroughly enjoyed my time working in St. Margaret's Wiveliscombe shop and will miss my wonderful volunteers and customers, but I am very excited to be starting in the Fundraising Team where I have been warmly welcomed by everyone at the hospice. I hope to build on my previous experience working as a fundraising intern for Breast Cancer Care, and really expand our Yeovil fundraising. I am looking forward to a new challenge in a new area!"
