"I volunteer because I want to. I get a great deal of satisfaction from meeting new people and working to support others in any way I can. I don't think people should retire - just change the direction of their lives. Volunteering did this for me." David Hawkes – volunteer

"It has expanded my horizons and given me a sense of achievement and satisfaction." Noel Ebery - volunteer
