Happy volunteers!

A message from some brilliant volunteers who spent a couple of weeks with us in August. Aaahh, the feeling's mutual!

"Des, Jack and I wish to say a huge 'thank you' to yourself, Neil and all my almost-housemates. We were made to feel incredibly welcome and your willingness to share your knowledge and experience meant that we really felt a part of the team. We feel very privileged to have been given the opportunity to be part of the project and experience first hand the valuable work you do. The levels of dedication are truly inspiring.

We are certainly far better informed than we were three weeks ago. It would be great to find some way of putting our experience to good use in future and it goes without saying that if there is ever anything we can do to help, all you need to do is ask."
