Roger volunteered with Community Service Volunteers (ICSV) and Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme (RSVP) Yorkshire.
‘I keep in touch with the younger generations and take much satisfaction from every aspect of working with RSVP. I am registered disabled but have always managed to meet my obligations. I’d say to anybody who was thinking of becoming a volunteer: don’t just think about it – DO IT!’
Ann Pulleyn, CSV/RSVP Yorkshire: ‘The aim of RSVP is to involve people who are over 50 in inter-generational activities, for example volunteers read on a one-to-one basis with children in local primary schools, or are part of a knitting programme for premature baby units and orphanages throughout Eastern Europe. Roger is the regional organiser. He has been on the programme for more than 12 years and put in a lot of work promoting volunteering in Sheffield.’
Don’t just think about it – DO IT!
