Our Story Tree

Little did we know back in January 2018, when we first collected in the branches from Arthurs Seat and carefully attached paper cherry blossom that one year on the tree would have passed through so many hands and given life to so many thoughts and ideas.

My Volunteering Journey

In 2005 a young graphics student was referred to Volunteer Edinburgh by his occupational therapist. He was incredibly anxious and paranoid. They thought volunteering might help build his confidence but he could only manage to be in the office for 15 minutes at most and couldn’t look us in the eye. 14 years later that same volunteer created a graphic illustration of his volunteering journey.
