Owen's volunteering story
Owen volunteers at his local Farleigh store on Saturdays. We spoke to him to find out why he chose to volunteer for Farleigh.
I have previously received support through the Yo-Yo Children's Bereavement Service, so Farleigh was an easy choice.
It's fun to volunteer in my local store. I help out once a week so I can fit it in around school.
I get to meet an interesting range of people - you hear about their lives and learn from them. I'm gaining people and communication skills.
As one of the younger volunteers, I can help with sorting and pricing stock such as videos games, where I have experience."
