Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Rhydyfelin, Pontypridd
Campaign: To encourage people to take up volunteer work

I’m part of a group that volunteers in our area and we all know the benefits that taking action in the local community can bring.


As well as making a difference to others' lives, you socialise and make new friends when you’re volunteering and we think it’s something that more people should consider doing.


Whether it’s cleaning graffiti, helping at a food bank or litter picking, there are plenty of options available for those wanting to volunteer.


We hope our campaign will inspire others to step up, make a difference and become their own community superhero.
