Our Wonderful Volunteers


Denise Hodges

We are terribly sorry to announce that Denise passed away peacefully in the company of her loving husband and other family members in June 2019 after a short illness.  Denise was a wonderful ambassador and volunteer for GAGA, both out front at events and fundraisers and behind the scenes as an independent reviewer of the management accounts and bank reconciliations.  She will be sorely missed and we offer our sincere condolences to the family.


Hana Smiddy

Fundraiser extraordinaire!  Hana is the driving force behind our funpacked quiz nights and even tackled four consecutive Wolf Run's to raise money for GAGA UK!

We also have some wonderful Ambassadors across the UK, without whom we could not be as successful as we are.

A huge thank you to all our trustees, volunteers, ambassadors and supporters - you all make a huge difference and we are so grateful for your assistance.
