David will be known to many students by the sheer volume of volunteering he does, since starting at DMU David has been involved with; the motorcycle society, engineering society, been a course rep for two years, coached archery and more recently been part of the new societies panel. David volunteers his time to run and coordinate numerous activities for other students..
Why did you get involved in Volunteering at DSU?
I had already done a good amount of volunteering before becoming a student at DMU, it made perfect sense to carry on and it also helps me take my mind away from studying; so helps maintain sanity and aids relaxation!
What is the best experience you have had whilst volunteering?
The best experience for me would either be the wins I have secured representing my peers on my course as a course rep, or being able to see the Archery club grow and become stronger and better month on month.
What would you say to anyone thinking about volunteering?
Getting involved in volunteering will make you a better person, you will get to know others and feel rewarded whilst helping. It will also look great on your CV whilst studying but also when you graduate.
