Volunteering and Active Forest @ Dalby
Anyone can volunteer; all you need is passion and some available time (sometimes very little!)
People choose to volunteer for a variety of different reasons; it may be that you'd like an opportunity to give back to your community, make a difference to the lives of others, improve your CV by developing your skills or pay forward a good deed you received. It may be that you want to volunteer for one off events, help to run a fundraising project, become a trustee, or volunteer as a family.
"There are lots of reasons why I volunteer! The main one is the feeling I get after a successful parkrun! Knowing that on average 150 people a week turn up and have a great time is incredible. Whether it's trying to smash their personal best or running around with an old friend having a chat, giving people that opportunity feels incredible. If I could bottle that feeling up I would!
Another reason is the people I have met along the way. Through the parkrun, I have met so many friendly and inspirational people that I am proud to call my friends. The atmosphere is so supportive and welcoming that you feel a true sense of community and a place where you belong."
