Volunteer Spotlight Alexandra Van Tuyll
Alexandra Van Tuyll, Fundraiser and Supporter of GRCC – written by Sarah O’Malley
On a bright spring afternoon, in early April, I had the privilege of meeting the wonderful Alexandra Van Tuyll. We met in in Mulranny village and enjoyed each other’s company whilst overlooking the unusually tame Atlantic coastline. During this time, we spent together, I was fortunate enough to learn about Alexandra’s past adventures, how she spends her time during the present and her hopes for the future. It was inspiring to discover how Alexandra turned her talent and love for art into a long-lasting career and when that career came to an end, she then began to use her talent as a way of giving to others and making a difference. The Galway Rape Crisis Centre has benefited hugely from Alexandra’s voluntary contributions over the past few years. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for the work she does and the positive difference she generates.
