Ruby Cummings

Outreach Officer

Hi! I'm Ruby and I'm your Outreach Officer this year.

One of the best things about Mildert is its six fantastic Outreach Projects. I'm responsible for making sure they all run smoothly and benefit our Durham community as much as possible - from supporting primary schools, disadvantaged 14-15 year-olds, young offenders, carers and disabled children, vulnerable old people and environmental conservation. I interview all the projects' directors, executives and team members, oversee the array of fundraising events throughout the year, and make sure everyone has loads of fun volunteering at Mildert!

Aside from outreach and my English degree, I'm often rewatching Scrubs for the zillianth time. I've also volunteered for the Young Persons' Project for two years, looked dashing in a bowler hat and fake moustache in our 48-hour musical Mary Poppins, and organised the Race Night Formal Fundraiser for the last two years.

Any questions or fundraising ideas for Outreach, contact me on outreach@mildert.co.uk :) x
