What’s Your Name And Where Are You Based?
I’m Rupinder Kaur and I’m based in Cobham, Surrey.
When Did you Become a Trustee of UK Friends of Unique Home (Punjab)?
What Is Your Area of Expertise?
Social Media. I set up my consulting practise after a 10 year corporate career and found social media an incredibly effective low cost marketing tool to raise awareness. I have applied the same strategy for UK Friends of Unique Home.
How Did You Become Involved In Unique Home?
I first came across the Home in 2011 and promised myself that once I had more time and flexibility I would get into contact with the trustees and volunteer. That opportunity came in Nov 2012. I spoke to Ranjit who suggested we raise awareness within our network initially. My husband Harinder and I did this by arranging a skydive and asking for sponsorship. We raised just under £6,000 and realised it was a cause that our family & friends believed in too! A visit to the Home in March 2013 consolidated our thinking and we were honoured to become trustees.
