INSPIRATIONAL volunteers are being celebrated for making a difference.
Citizens Advice South Warwickshire is shining a spotlight on the contribution of some 130 volunteers who give their time to help people find a way forward.
Last year Citizens Advice South Warwickshire helped over 7,500 people with issues from housing and debt to benefit and employment rights.
Henry Lu has been a volunteer for the last five years and whose claim to fame was helping Megan Giglia, the gold medal Paralympic cyclist, when she sought advice during difficulties four years ago.
Henry said: “It’s always my hope that my clients don’t give up hope and can be helped back to a normal life. But what Megan achieved by turning her life around and winning UK’s first Paralympic gold at Rio is beyond a dream.”
“I find advising people is most worthwhile and meaningful . Experiencing other people’s far more challenging problems puts my own into perspective. It’s very rewarding.”
