Volunteering Role: Tai Chi Instructor
Why did you want to volunteer with Age Cymru?
I applied to train and volunteer for Age Cymru Tai Chi because I wanted to be a member of a group but they were all full in my area.
What difference to your life has volunteering made to you?
The volunteering I have done and currently do adds to the variety of interest in my life.
What do you enjoy most about your volunteering experience?
Looking across the range of volunteering I have done and currently do, I like the variety, meeting people I would never meet otherwise, learning from other people involved and the activities, considerable control over the length and timing of my volunteering, and the feeling of usually offering something however small, to other people that they value.
What would you say to someone who is thinking of becoming involved with volunteering?
Go for it. If you enjoy the first opportunity you choose, great. If you don’t, look for something else as there are so many different volunteering opportunities out there.
