We are officially live!

April is, and always has been, the month of activity. As the days are getting longer (and a little bit warmer!), we are working hard to ensure that volunteers, from the UK as well as overseas, are finding a volunteer project for this summer. I hope that it’s OK to use the words of NCS (make sure to read about their first #MeetUp late last month further down!), and state that we are in for a summer of a lifetime. Enjoy our April Newsletter!
