    Fantastic 1st meetup Rachel; highly motivating presentations from Nathan & Frank and met some really interesting people. Great choice of venue too. Thanks for organising - look forward to the next one!

    Great night- thanks Rachel for organising! Really interesting insight into the different pathways to get into the aid and development sector. Loved the informal setting and opportunity to network with like minded people. Great presentations/stories from Frank and Nathan too about their experiences in the field. Looking forward to the next meet up!

    Not sure if I'll make it tonight - not feeling 100% - so changing my RSVP to no. If I'm feeling OK later can I still just show up?

    This will be an interesting insight into volunteering and a good less formal way to meet up and discuss the sector. I'm looking forward to it.

    If an office boardroom in Richmond would work as a venue, I could arrange it.

    • Rachel

      Darina, thank you!! I'm hoping to have it organised by the end of today - if not, I'll let you know. It's very difficult to source free places!
