Volunteer Ambassador Longford NVW 2019 - James Quinn
This is National Volunteering Week. Six Volunteer Ambassadors from Longford were chosen to highlight the impact Volunteering has had on their lives.
This is James Quinn's story: "Volunteering has allowed me to develop my interpersonal skills and to help those who need assistance. As a First Aid Volunteer I have been able to help people in a time of need. I enjoy helping as it gives me a great sense of satisfactions knowing I have done my best to provide a vital service. Volunteering for St. John’s Ambulance Ireland has improved my confidence in terms of meeting new people. Giving up my free time to learn new skills, knowing they are appreciated gives me the inspiration to do more. I hope it will encourage others to get involved in volunteering".
