Volunteering for ECHO is a great experience because you’re made to feel welcome and part of a team. My partner was born with a heart condition so I came along to some of the events she attended and decided to volunteer.
Like any other charity they need lots of help and I like knowing that the time I give benefits others.
I’ve been helping out with events now for nearly two and a half years and I really enjoy it: seeing the smiles of parents and children, it’s so motivating and I’ve met some lovely people. It’s a pleasure to help out.
