Andy Green

I'm Andy Green - co-founder of Counting Hope and founder of Lyke Limited and I'm passionate about volunteering, charity work, and social action. I have cerebral palsy and type one diabetes, but I don't let that stop me! Having raised over £1,000 for various charities, volunteered for hundreds of hours, won multiple awards and worked with many clients for my age, I like to think I have a lot experience and enough to know anything is possible, but enough to also know that I have so much to learn.


Maisy’s Volunteers’ Week Testimonial

Hi, I’m Maisy Carroll and I’m a volunteer for Counting Hope, an upcoming Charitable Incorporated Organisation, currently focusing on improving the lives of people living in Sal Island, Cape Verde.

Previously, I have volunteered for Healing Young People’s Council in organising village events to raise money for different charities such as Brake. I volunteer as I find it very rewarding to help those in need and really enjoy the different fundraising activities and events that are put on to generate funds and bring everyone together.

I hope to carry on volunteering in the future, both locally and abroad to experience different cultures and communities while helping people.

As a side note from Andy Green – whilst it may not appear as though Maisy has done a lot of volunteering, we know that she has made a substantial impact in her local area, and besides: it is not about how much volunteering you do, it’s about the difference you make. Counting Hope aims to empower people in this region as well as Cabo Verde by providing opportunities to people like Maisy to follow their passion and develop skills that will help them in all aspects of lives.
