Over a hundred people regularly give of their time and skills to support the work of the Cardinal Hume Centre in London. Nationally, 23 million people volunteer, and 1-7 June is time to celebrate their hard work in National Volunteer Week.
Caroline is a trustee of the Cardinal Hume Centre, a voluntary role.
As a Trustee of the Centre, I help to steer the organisation’s strategy. Why with the Centre? I am very drawn to the Benedictine ethos of hospitality and the work the Centre does bears this out in a real and tangible way. As a Catholic, it is important for me to live out my social justice responsibilities, and volunteering for the Centre allows me to do this. I don’t have lots of money to give, but I can give my time and skills.
