Volunteering Role: Nordic Walking Instructor and Leader
Why did you want to volunteer with Age Cymru?
To help others get the benefits of Nordic Walking that I and my wife have found.
What difference to your life has volunteering made to you?
It gives me a sense of purpose
What do you enjoy most about your volunteering experience?
The pleasure obtained when learners finally get the technique right after several weeks of trying and even greater pleasure of seeing them go on to join one of the Nordic Walking groups.
What would you say to someone who is thinking of becoming involved with volunteering?
By helping older people become more physically and socially active you will be doing your bit to help reduce the pressure on the NHS – as well as improving your own wellbeing.
