Volunteer Stories

This year we are celebrating Volunteers' Week (1-7 June) by highlighting the incredible and dedicated work of our volunteers through a series of volunteer stories. Each day we will be publishing a short written interview with a volunteer so you can get to know a little more about the essential role they play in the work of the BMC.

To find information for volunteers please head over to our dedicated volunteers page.
