5. Volunteering inspires,  “my daughter (who was lucky enough to take part yesterday in Year 4) was raving about it when she got home…all she wanted to talk about when she went to bed was what she wanted to be when she was older…  Thank you to the volunteers who gave up their time to come and share their experiences with the children and many thanks to everyone behind the scenes who organised it.”  Lindsay Walker, Parent and Teacher, Dearham School
