Social Committee / Volunteers

The Social Committee arranges cultural events and activities for the Finnish-British Society throughout the year. These can include talks on a wide range of topics, gathering in cafes, restaurants or pubs, and outdoor events. The annual Christmas Party is always one of Finnbrit’s most special occasions. These events and activities are open to everyone with an interest in the Society.

Our team is a group of active individuals with a variety of interests. Each of them gives their time to help create events in English, either by planning or by assisting on the day. All volunteering is fun and valuable, and helps us to bring diversity of the Helsinki area.

We warmly welcome newcomers to get involved. Do you have an idea for an event? Would you like to help us organise events?

Join us in planning fun activities in English or contribute your ideas and wishes via the “Ideas & Feedback” button. You can also let us know of your interest to volunteer by contacting us via email.

Members: Saga Arola, Mira Berglund-Fitzpatrick, Bridget Emery, Satu Hillilä, Saana Kallioinen, Laura Karppinen, Noora Kumpulainen, Harriet Lindeberg-Saapunki, Cynde Sadler, Anthony Shaw & Marlene Weck.

We look forward to welcoming you to our international team!
