Neil Harvey has been a Collection Box volunteer for over two years, covering Cardiff, Penarth, Llandough, Caerphilly and Abergavenny. We asked him a few questions.
What made you decide to become a Collection Box volunteer?
I’ve volunteered for Tŷ Hafan for years, ever since a conversation with a mate about holding a cricket match for a local charity. The Area Manager for Cardiff at the time mentioned Collection Box volunteering. I had a meeting with Ken and never looked back!
What do you most enjoy about it?
Every day is different because you’re out and about; you never know who you’re going to meet or where you might end up.
Would you recommend it?
Definitely! Some days my feet ache but I think of the kids over in the hospice and how I’m helping them, and that spurs me on. It’s part of my life now. I love it.
Would you like to join Neil as a Collection Box volunteer? Maybe you have family members or friends who could help? Just a few hours every three to six months is all it takes to make a difference.
