Gerry is one of our Ambassadors and first volunteered with Refugee Support in 2019. He has returned every year since then to help out. Each time, it can take a couple of weeks to adjust back to normal life but after that he has a huge sense of positivity and a desire to continue:
He finds working with likeminded people, whatever their age, and getting things done extremely satisfying.
And volunteering with us isn’t all that Gerry does. He also serves as a volunteer on the board of a thriving local credit union and with his local church.
The most inspiring thing for us is the strength of Gerry’s community. He lives in a village in rural Ireland who have all got behind his volunteering. Together, they have raised an astonishing €100,000 over the last 4 years for Refugee Support.
Gerry and his community are an example to us all and show how helping others helps them.
