I Volunteer at;
The British Red Cross
What do you do and where are you based?
I volunteered for the British Red Cross last May. My friends and I helped to sell raffle tickets dressed as nurses at their Annual Gala evening.
Why did you start volunteering?
I chose to help volunteer after speaking to some of their representatives at Highlands College in January. They told us how we could help so later in the week I made contact to ask what I could do.
How do you balance your time between volunteering, work and family life?
Even though I have only helped out at one event, it was easy to give up an evening to help out a charity.
What do you enjoy most about your volunteering role?
I enjoyed working with such lovely people in the British Red Cross and that fact that I know I have helped out a charity which does so much makes me feel proud.
What advice would you give someone who was considering volunteering?
Just do it, it is an amazing thing to help a good cause, and you gain so much appreciation for the people who have volunteered for years and still love doing it.
