“I applied to be a Team Leader because I wanted be involved in some form of fundraising after Uni and applying to Dig Deep was the best decision I could have made. It’s been so much fun spreading the word and recruiting a team of like-minded individuals. Now I get to witness the incredible results of everyone’s fundraising and the positive impact it will have. The passion and support of the whole team has blown me away, you really do become a part of the Dig Deep Family from Day 1 and I know I will continue to support them in the future. ”
