Tigger Pritchard

Volunteer Speaker, part of the ShelterBox family

Meet Tigger

‘Curled up upon a mattress on a sweltering day in Kathmandu because of too much spicy food, I was pondering my future life goals and I wanted to ‘give something back’. Thinking of options, my mind kept coming back to ShelterBox. That’s how it all started.

My career features a lot of public speaking, I’m very passionate about what I do, and I realised I had a passion and a belief about what ShelterBox do also. The ethics, the beauty of that ‘green box’, the essence of ShelterBox all resonated with me. So, volunteering as a speaker seemed a natural use of my skills.

It’s been a while now, and I am continually amazed by the response from people I engage with, that moment when individuals in the room realise the impact ShelterBox has and the positive ripple effect it has upon families and communities.

ShelterBox is a huge worldwide family, with many individuals in many different roles, each as important as the next. I’m proud to be part of something that really does make a difference. ShelterBox provides me with a real, tangible, hands on way of “giving something back”. I believe this is what people see and realise during presentations, and that gives me such a buzz.’

Being part of this worldwide family gives me a bit of faith back in humanity. I love it!
