David Walters

David clocked up an incredible 628 volunteering hours last year. Alongside weekly meetings, he fits in driving vehicles for events, delivering regular training courses, running training sessions and supporting preparation sessions for Care Quality Commission inspections. He’s an integral part of the unit meeting nights, and the improvements he has made to the training provided have led to the highest ever membership in the First Aid Society at University of London Union.
