GVS covers a wide variety of volunteering opportunities, from helping Children, volunteering in Sports, Environment, Hospitals and Hospices and more.


Steve Hunt, 70, won a Wales Volunteer of the Year award last year, for dedicating time to maintaining Porthkerry Country Park.



Steve Hunt said: “I enjoy spending time outdoors, and find volunteering really rewarding - especially seeing the changes to one of my favourite parks. I always try and get out to volunteer, no matter the weather, and work on clearing trees, installing new gates and creating new habitats for wildlife.


“I would recommend volunteering to all, especially to anyone who enjoys being outdoors.”
