Volunteer Stories

Margaret is one of our longest-serving volunteers. She helps out in the office and helps to write our letters. Have you had a letter thanking you for your donation? Then Margaret will be the one who has personally written to you with thanks 🙂

Mike has been our main man in the garden. His green-fingered enthusiasm has helped make it a hive of sustainable produce. If there’s anything worth knowing about bees, birds or vegetables, he’s your man!

Kevin has been the driver of our trusty minibus, transporting children to and from school and escorting families on days out and other exciting trips. He’s contributed massively to children’s education and families’ wellbeing as a result 🙂

Geoff has been the right hand man to our Maintenance Consultant Ian MacKenzie. He’s helped out with a range of stuff, not least fixing our office windows so we don’t stifle in the summer heat!
