Royal Holloway holds a volunteering bonanza

10,000 hours of student volunteering and a Queens Award for Volunteers sets the scene for what can only be described as euphorically uplifting Festival.

Many many Charities and community groups, as well as Royal Holloway’s own community initiatives, had set up stalls for the students to see and discover and sign up to volunteer with.

I opened the festival at 11am, and by 12am the site was buzzing and the lists for volunteering were filling fast.

An event like this gives you great hope for the future-thank you Royal Holloway.
