Volunteers

Red Rox Team

There is nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer. Our entire organisation is ran by volunteers who find the time in their busy lifestyles to coordinate the events we provide. Each volunteer has an equally important role to play within the team and are always encouraged to bring new ideas to our attention. Our committee members insure these ideas are put into action.

Team Profiles

Yvonne Murray

Occupation: University Lecturer

I was involved in the original Red Rox event while I volunteered with the British Red Cross. The event has developed throughout the years. I find being involved in this challenging event very rewarding and worthwhile.

Liam O’ Neill

Occupation: Freelance IT Consultant

I joined the Red Rox Organisation 2 years ago, giving I.T. recommendations and later becoming Treasurer for the Organisation before advancing to the role of Vice-Chairperson the year after. During the 24 hour Challenge I am in charge of Communications between the walkers and support groups on the hill and the support staff at Base Camp. This way the walkers can be tracked and kept up to date with any relevent information required.

Tracey Duncan

Occupation: Administrator for an Oil Services Company

I was introduced to Red Rox through Colin, one of the founders. His drive and vision on helping people was inspiring and I wanted to get involved. I love the idea of raising funds for different charities and helping communities and people in need.

Colin Cass

Occupation: Staff Nurse

I am one of the four founders of Red Rox and it has been amazing to see the organization evolve into an excellent source for helping others in their time of need. I enjoy each and every event that we establish as well as raising awareness and funds for many charities and causes across the country. It is both inspirational and rewarding to see our volunteers empowered in making a difference within their communities. My main focus is for our organization to continue growing as we aim high in changing lives.

Claire Adkin

Occupation: Medical Student

Having completed the Red Rox 24 hour challenge  last year I was inspired by the dedication of the team and so recently joined as a new committee member. I’m really excited to be involved and hope to use my volunteering experience to help with upcoming events, and look forward to being involved in the community projects.

Conner Ladley

Occupation: Full Time Employment

I want to volunteer to help make a difference to people who need help. After losing my granddad to cancer I felt although the charities who helped him did an amazing job and I wanted to give something back and this is a way I wanted to do it. Seeing people smile when they are Ill is one of the things I like. This is because no matter how Ill they are they can still see light in even the darkest of places. After Helping at the 24 hour challenge I felt great. As I know I helped contribute towards some amazing charities. Being apart of this experience pushed me both physically and mentally and gave me the opportunity to work within a great team knowing my opinion was valued.

Ben Jackson

Occupation: Trainee Ambulance Technician

This will be my third consecutive year being a part of this amazing organisation. Each year has been more rewarding than the previous one. Truly memorable experience with some of Scotland’s most gorgeous sceneries.

Kathleen Duncan 

Occupation: Review Assistant

I first heard about Red Rox Events & Fundraising through current volunteers Tracey and Colin. They highlighted various activities and events  they have organised so far and was inspired by their future plans regarding fundraising.

I have to admit that when they asked if I’d like to volunteer at the Red Rox 24 hour challenge 2016, I was wary as it was something I’ve never done or experienced before which made me give it go for the “why not” decision. However it turned out to be an exciting and emotional experience, which has given me the interest to participate in future events. I’d suggest anyone to give it a go as the team as a whole are very welcoming and hard working with everything they do regarding Red Rox Events & Fundraising.
