Mike & Jan – A day in the life of a Volunteer

Volunteers’ Week is a chance to celebrate and say thank you for the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK. Please take time to read this beautiful story written by Jan & Mike, two wonderful Information & Advice volunteers.

Every day, volunteers give their time and effort to make an incredible difference for older people. Without them, we couldn’t be here when we’re needed most. Please read & share this story as widely as you can.
