"As an educational and coaching consultant I am especially pleased to be involved"
"I like the idea of helping other people get as much pleasure from reading as I always have"
"I find spending time in the evening reading and formatting the books an enjoyable way to unwind"
"It makes me feel happy and valuable - I guess that’s what volunteering is all about"
"It's great to be able to volunteer from home in any spare time I have"
"I became a volunteer so I could help others' lives be as touched by reading as mine"
"I like to feel I'm doing something worthwhile despite retirement - and I don't even have to leave the house!"
