Hear from our volunteers

We asked some of our volunteers to give us their opinions about the type of work they have been involved in and their experience of volunteering with us.

What they say...

'We've just done a spot of dusting in the bell tower.'
Andy (Cathedral Camp volunteer)

'It's a great thing when you get the building used and you see the place full of people.'
(Friends group committee member)

'We were working over the weekend on the churchyard. On Sunday a lot of locals came past walking their dogs. They were really pleased that we were doing something with their church - it made me feel really good inside.'
(Young volunteer from a Homeless Project)

'I enjoyed my first day as a volunteer so much that I was the last person to leave the church!'
Claire (Volunteer)

'Now that I am retired I have some spare time on my hands during the week. I've always had a love for this church and now I'm able to do something tangible by being a volunteer here'
Alan (Retired teacher)

'Although I've got a good degree, I know the experience I've gained as a volunteer here will improve my chances of getting a job in a heritage organisation. It's also given me extra confidence.'
David (volunteer at a residential experience)
