How volunteering helped me
John Alick Macleod
The day I attended the Day Centre and saw the work that was carried out there, and also the warm, welcoming and very caring staff, I knew this was the place that I wanted to be involved in as a volunteer.
The volunteer work I do is really varied; helping out with monthly meetings, interviewing members about their experiences of setting up audio-visual equipment – I’ve even accompanied a member to a European Parliament meeting in Brussels!
