Afternoon Tea Volunteer since July 2015
Varun is going on to study engineering next year
Why did you want to volunteer for Dr Kershaw's?
My sister used to be a volunteer and I have always liked helping people so I thought I would get involved as I feel the same way.
What I like most about volunteering is when someone says thanks and has a smile on their face – you know you’ve done something good. I couldn’t say I’ve got a proudest moment at the hospice because I just serve the tea (!) but I feel proud to be part of the team.
I’m going onto engineering eventually – I know that’s pretty different from working in medicine but employers are always looking for those ‘soft’ skills like working in a team and with people. I know that volunteering at Dr Kershaw's is doing me some good and it’s great to help others too.
