A volunteer is someone who freely gives their time to work with an organisation in a range of activities. Volunteering has mutual benefits. It allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place, and can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you to make new friends, expand your networks, builds confidence, and boosts your social skills. Simultaneously, it helps the organisation to expand its services to meet the needs of local communities.
 
Here at the Beth Johnson Foundation we greatly value the growing army of volunteers who selflessly give their time to support the work we are involved in. Whether it be a listening ear for those experiencing, living with a diagnosis of, or surviving cancer; or helping older people to understand and access technology, we simply could not do it without you all. Thank you all for your ongoing support.

As it is Volunteer Week 1-7 June, we took the opportunity to talk to our volunteers, about why they wanted to volunteer, and to share comments from the staff and clients. The BJF Volunteer newsletter is available to download, it covers how our volunteers help in our Cancer Support and Healthy Generations Projects, stories from the volunteers and of course a huge THANK YOU! from the clients and staff.
