What inspired you to get involved?
Knowing that few people know first aid and how much it can help in situations inspired me to develop my skills in this area.
What does your volunteering involve?
I attend a two hour training session each week and help provide cover for first aid duties at events such as football matches and rallies.
What skills or qualities are required for your volunteering role?
The nature of the role required determination, a persistent personality, good team working skills and excellent interpersonal skills.
What do you enjoy most about volunteering and what has been your highlight?
I get a sense of achievement from the volunteering, but I also have a lot of fun with the other people who are volunteers.
Why would you encourage others to become a Millennium Volunteer and what advice would you give them?
You get a lot back from volunteering and don’t have to give up a lot of your time. My advice would be that volunteering is also about enjoying what you’re doing, so choose something that you know you will enjoy.
