Tom Smith, Volunteer Coordinator
“The volunteers we recruited through you at QM have been absolutely fantastic and a number have come back again and again.
The volunteers that supported at the wheelchair skills training were brilliant- it’s not much of an exaggeration to say it would not have worked without them! They have been enthusiastic and committed throughout. Thanks for everything. The QM partnership has been really productive for us.”

"On behalf of everyone at Trailblazers After School Club I would like to thank Provide volunteers who gave up their time, ideas and resources to participate and volunteer to make our Black History Month event a big success. Without your volunteers it would not have been possible. Parents were very impressed with the mural you painted and your contribution was greatly appreciated."

Young Enterprise, Tower Hamlets and Hackney
"The volunteers from Queen Mary made the day special and relevant for all of the school students who attended. By having a QM volunteer at each table who were ready and enthusiastic to answer questions, the school students got a feel for what their futures might hold in store, and began to see University as a feasible and exciting potential for them.
The volunteers were everything that we would want from a volunteer, people who are enthusiastic, willing to get involved with the games and activities we run and have a way with inspiring and encouraging young people.
Some of the volunteers were planning to leave at lunchtime but were enjoying the day so much that they decided to stay for the full day which was fantastic! The volunteers came from a variety of different courses with some wishing to gain experience in mentoring, others in leadership and others who were looking to go into teaching in the future.”
Kathryn Gilfoy, Programme Manager
"A really big thank you to everyone for yesterday. I personally found you all very professional and committed to the work and it was a real delight for me to have such people to work with."
