Pam Manfield said: I was very impressed by the enthusiasm of the young potential volunteers and the intelligent questions they asked about their volunteer roles. Following this event, I have signed up 9 young people to join our teams at Stotfold Watermill and Nature Reserve and hope this will be the beginning of a very positive connection between Knights Templar School and community projects like ours.
Volunteering not only teaches valuable skills, but also is great fun, something I hope our young volunteers will appreciate. We certainly look forward to welcoming them into our volunteer groups.
The school is to be commended for its imagination in reaching out to the voluntary sector to provide their pupils with additional ways to learn, outside the classroom. We were delighted to be asked to be involved and will certainly attend if the event continues next year.
Maggie Doust said: It was a very well organised event and a pleasure to attend, thank you for the invite.
It was great to talk to the students and I found them all enthusiastic and genuinely interested in what Keech has to offer.
Volunteering is an integral part of life at Keech and we very much depend on our volunteers in many areas of the Hospice. Giving up time for others is a wonderful gift and really does make a difference.
