JAKE’S STORY – CHAIR OF ALMONDBURY BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

WHAT IS YOUR VOLUNTEER ROLE?

I am now Chair of the organisation before that I was Vice Chair and before that Project Lead.

WHAT DO YOU GET INVOLVED WITH?

I was initially involved with gathering bits together for a CCTV project, this entailed finding suppliers, contacting Kirklees Council, communicating consultation plans. I have recently also coordinated a local art installation with the 2 local schools (King James’s School and Almondbury Community School) with positive quotes and messages all around the village.  It was a real collaboration between different people and organisations..

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO ANYONE THINKING ABOUT VOLUNTEERING?

“It’s such a rewarding thing to spend your free time doing”

“It converts in to happiness and satisfaction doing something really worthwhile. The rewards for me personally are that I can do a lot of good. It makes me happy and I am surrounded by some fantastic people and amazing volunteers.  People who want to help others, its so rewarding
