I enjoy being an @Platformhg Digital Champion because I never know what I will be doing from week to week. I find it very rewarding being of help to people and seeing a of look of relief or a smile because they have learned a new skill or achieved something, they didn’t think they could do. It’s what has kept me volunteering.
The team work involved with being a Digital Champion means that all of us can bring their own skill sets to the table and this enables us all to learn some new skills to offer to others.
This was the second award ceremony that I have attended in the 3 years since I’ve been volunteering.
Winning the Volunteer of the Year award and attending the ceremony was a very humbling experience as I got to see what all the other volunteers are doing. I saw so many people from very young to the elderly all volunteering and giving real benefit to their communities.
How they choose a winner I don’t know because everyone there deserved recognition for the projects and the work they had done throughout the year.
I’m looking forward to 2020 and new venues and the new people I’ll work with and the new and old clients alike we will be helping.
