Why I volunteer...

" There’s such a range of opportunities here that there is really something for everyone. You might think that you are limited to one role linked to your previous career but there might be something new you haven’t thought of doing. Everyone has something to give I would say give it a go!"
- Maureen Lohmeyer, Fountains Abbey Volunteer
