Phillip Layford - June 2019

June’s Volunteer of the month goes to a student who hasn’t stopped volunteering even through their summer break! Phillip has been a great help with regularly inspecting the bees and keeping on top of tasks. Beesoc has been expanding this summer, he has helped with the exciting arrival of the three new colonies in the roof garden apiary. With many of the society volunteers not around with Phillip’s helping hand Beesoc has been able to ensure they can survive the busy summer and even expand their colonies.



Abbie Rogers - July 2019

Realising she had time on her hands, Abbie contacted Go Volunteer and then took on intensive volunteering for 4 projects in 3 days. Helping kids camp at Rupert's Wood - encouragement, teamwork and problem solving with 8 year olds trying to put up tents for the first time. Participating at an iron age archaeological dig, Abbie was dropped off at a remote farm site and over 9 hours she worked alongside local members of the community and, as would have it, an expert from her own School of Archaeology. On the following day she helped a girls' group go camping and then was back on campus in time to volunteer with Intogration. A very hectic few days!

Congratualtions both of you, thank you for all your hard work!
