Volunteer testimonials

After each event we survey our people to hear the good news directly from our volunteers but equally important are the learnings which we feed back to the event organisers to work on continuous improvements.


We take on board any learning to improve ourselves to, so encouraging open and honest feedback is important to us.


We believe this helps us retain high quality volunteers and why we are re-invited back to events year after year.


Here are some of the lovely comments we have picked out from our volunteers in 2019;
