‘When I was interviewing for my job, being able to show you give your time to something so positive was really valued by the interviewers. Being a volunteer trainer has definitely taken me out of my comfort zone and helped build my confidence - after presenting in front of hundreds of people, not much can faze you!’ – Richard, St John Ambulance Trainer
