Hello all,

As you may be aware we recently celebrated ‘Student Volunteering Week 2017’ and as part of the week we invited guests to share their volunteering stories with us via our blog.
The posts were great and it was really interesting to learn about the impact volunteering had, in particular, on the career choices for those involved.
