Why I Love Volunteering

I had just moved to Manchester when I began volunteering, and it helped me to become a part of the local community and to make friends. I also got access to lots of training courses, such as first aid, which has improved my confidence both personally and as a volunteer.

Why I Love Volunteering

I always end a day of volunteering knowing that I have had a direct positive impact on the lives of the people who I’ve supported

Why I Love Volunteering

Volunteering for Macmillan has really made a difference to my life. The best thing for me is giving other people with cancer something that I didn’t have. I get a huge amount of satisfaction from being able to do something to help people, doing something positive in a negative situation. It has also really helped me to get my confidence back after my treatment.
