What does your volunteering involve?
It involves a range of events such as festivals, bag-packs and stall events. Mostly I work in the Hospice Shop where I get to help putting the items we receive from people donating.
What do you enjoy most about volunteering?
I have enjoyed having the opportunity to meet new people and gain skills I never knew I had.
Why would you encourage others to become a Millennium Volunteer?
A lot of young people donít realise the impact certain charities and organisations can have on other peoplesí lives and so if you like meeting new people then get involved!
