My name is Charlotte Walton, I am a student who loves volunteering and getting to know people of different backgrounds.
Currently I only volunteer on the quiz nights with the Carers Centre; but I have also volunteered with their Time for Me games, and their Craft sessions.
As mentioned I volunteer because I love it, but I feel that so many jobs want experience, but are not willing to give you experience until you have worked. I feel that by volunteering I am proving myself as being capable, sensitive to all matters, and competent, in order to do what I dream of doing in the future (putting on shows accessible to disadvantaged communities).
I think they main think I get out of volunteering is knowledge, the group is always teaching me something new and I am able to use that knowledge in the future.
