Volunteers Week - Victoria Mitchell
Young people have a huge impact in their communities. Today @VolunteersWeek is working in partnership with the #iWill campaign to focus on the role of young volunteers.
Meet Victoria Mitchell whose volunteering efforts made a significant contribution to developing the ‘Our Stories’ Exhibition on display at Callendar House, part of FCT’s Great Place project.
The work of Great Place Falkirk is made possible by the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Victoria was part of a team who worked to create the exhibition.
Here’s what she said about the whole experience:
“Participating in creating the new Callendar House exhibition as a volunteer was a wonderful experience - it was incredible to see the whole process of putting an exhibition together and be invited to share your research and thoughts.
I loved the collaboration with the other volunteers and the staff at Callendar House, and think that one of the great strengths of the exhibition is that it brings together and showcases different voices and interests.”
We are incredibly grateful to Victoria for everything she has done. Thank You.
