Virtual Volunteering Club – Joel

Posted on

Joel is a Year 2 student who is studying Economics A Level, History A Level and Criminology Level 3 Extended Certificate. Joel is another of our students who have been volunteering with Age UK during the lockdown, making weekly phone calls to elderly people to help fight against loneliness.

Why did you decide to start volunteering with Age UK? 

I’d heard of the charity before and I thought it would be a rewarding experience.

What have you enjoyed about this volunteering activity?

I enjoyed this Volunteering because I quite simply enjoy my conversations with Margaret.

How would you encourage other students to volunteer with Age UK?

I think other students should get involved because they would get the opportunity to meet a wonderful person while also aiding against loneliness among the elderly.
