Sally – Great Oaks Hospice
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a fabulous training today. Chris is an absolute wizard. He delivered a most informative and insightful training which kept us engaged the whole way through, plus it was the right level of information and interaction, I thoroughly enjoyed it
Pat – Forest Community Church
What an amazing workshop delivered by a truly inspirational young man. He certainly challenged some of our perceptions in a thoughtful and informative way. I’d highly recommend the training to anyone
I don’t really consider myself as a volunteer because what I get back from helping people is even greater than what I give. I feel lucky to be surrounded by likeminded people that simply care about each other and our community. I think FVAF do an excellent job in spreading this ethos and I hope they’ll continue to show people what a joy volunteering can be.
