CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOU AND YOUR VOLUNTEERING?
Yes, I’m Andrew Marsden from Brearley’s Solicitors. My main volunteering recently has been with Batley Business Association, helping to organise events such as “Around Town”, the Christmas Lights etc. We need to think now about life after lock down and what assistance we may be able to provide to local groups and communities. It would be good to nurture the community spirit at this time and the sense that “we can do that”.
WHAT TYPES OF ACTIVITIES DO YOU USUALLY DO WHEN YOU VOLUNTEER?
At the moment, it’s pretty adhoc and reactive, things come to us. Previously, I have delivered “Volunteer and the Law sessions” for the charity sector.I enjoy doing them, it’s nice to do something that helps people.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO ANYONE THINKING ABOUT VOLUNTEERING?
“If anyone was thinking about it, I’d say, give it a go…Life should be about new adventures…keep enjoying it..“
