Volunteers down the years

So much has improved at St Michael’s over the years thanks in no small part to the volunteers who have visited the school… They have each given so much of themselves, with tireless enthusiasm and multiple skills, making a significant difference to these children’s lives.

The age range has been huge from 16 – 71 years old! All volunteers live either in the convent or the visitors’ house (both at the school) during their visits.

Thank you to each and everyone of you.
