What do you enjoy most about volunteering and what has been your highlight?
I enjoy the variety of work I do. Itís very rewarding knowing that the work I'm doing is helping someone and making their life just a little bit better. I've been lucky enough to work with some fantastic volunteers who make my Saturday fun!!
Why would you encourage others to become a Millennium Volunteer and what advice would you give them?
I would encourage others to get into volunteering because its extremely rewarding. My advice would be to volunteer with an organisation that you are interested in because you will enjoy your time far more. Personally volunteering has taught me lots of skills. Deciding to volunteer has been one of the best decisions I've ever made!
