Laura King – Multiples Canterbury

Nominated by – Sophie McInnes – Multiples Canterbury

What Sophie had to say …

Laura is one of those highly valuable volunteers without an official title or committee role, but makes sure that everyone is ok and finds solutions when they’re not. She has been a member since 2017; her twins were born December 2017 and she also has a 4 year old. Laura first volunteered as a buddy when her twins were only 4 months old, and has now supported 12 families in this way. She is even a buddy for a triplet family, drawing on experience as a nanny of triplets for 9 years. She goes out of her way to help, particularly with mums who are struggling, respects families’ boundaries, is a playgroup regular, and offers great advice on all kinds of topics via our Facebook group. Laura also lets the committee know about tricky situations or whether someone needs more support, for instance she referred a struggling buddy for one of our Covid grants in 2020. Laura is a wonderful mum and human being, and the club wouldn’t function half as well without people like her.
