Lisa Kerridge – Review
Why did you want to volunteer?
To help others and gain a valuable experience.
Do you feel you made a difference, how?
Yes I think I made a difference although I was only there for one week.
What did you do for fun?
Hung out at the volunteer house and eating at the Happy diner in Varna.
When was your most enjoyable experience, do you have an interesting story?
My first day at the romany project, the children were so happy to see us when we walked in. They loved what we did with them, colouring, painting and playing with them outside.
Who did you make friends with and for what reasons?
Everyone was so lovely and I made friends easily because we were all there for the same reasons.
Would you considering going again or perhaps to another project with Original Volunteers? Please explain why.
Yes I want to go back to Bulgaria as the place was so friendly and I felt comfortable all the time.
What would you say/recommend to a friend who was interested in volunteering?
I have told all my friends about my time in Bulgaria.
Could you offer any tips to future volunteers?
Go for it!
