“What’s it Like?”…Our Current Volunteers’ Experiences

We are very lucky that both our Ashford and Canterbury volunteer groups have a core of fantastic regular volunteers, without whose enthusiasm, hard work and regular attendance, allow us to carry out work all over our partnership area.

With the launch of our new website we asked our volunteers to tell us why they volunteer and what keeps them coming out week after week.
