Sophie Bendelow
Volunteer Coordinator
About
How did you get involved with pride and why?
I originally got involved with pride when my girlfriend received a pride newsletter looking for an assistant volunteer coordinator. I have a passion for events and wish to peruse a career in this area and knew it would be brilliant experience

What is your role?
I am currently the Volunteer Coordinator.  
 
If money was no object who would be your ultimate Pride headliner?
Without a shadow of a doubt I would love to see Beyoncé at Newcastle Pride!
 
What was the first record you ever bought?
I would hazard a guess at a steps single but it could have been anything!
 
What skills and experience do you bring to the Northern Pride committee? 
I have over 10 years experience as a volunteer myself, in various settings, I like to think I have a good idea of what people want to gain from volunteering and also realistic expectations to have of volunteers too. I am a fun, bubbly and outgoing member of the LGBT community and love to give something back to society. 
 
What are your hopes for this year's Northern Pride?
I hope that this year, our 10th Birthday, is going to surpass everybody's expectations and be the biggest and best year yet, with lots of partying, fun and fundraising of course!
