August Volunteer of the Month

Go Volunteer hasn't stopped this summer. We have been extremely busy out and about in the local community. 

This month our Volunteer of the Month goes to Ian Cole...


Mature student Ian was keen to keep his hands busy in the first week of August. He first made all the preparations properly, meeting with the manager of Kids Kabin (a youth project in Walker), arranging his DBS check, and getting insured and tested on the NUSU minibus.  He then turned up on the day as the youth group's driver, camp helper and nature guide - connecting the interests of his Biology degree with the volunteer opportunity. Camping overnight alongside the camp (but just far enough from the kids to get a decent night's sleep), Ian was an invaluable help to the youth workers and had a great time with the children: they are keen for him to join them again next summer.

Congratulations Ian, we have loved having you involved and excited work closely for future activities.
