“Volunteering is so worth it for your mental health and for your soul”

Just ask Lynn

Stroke survivor Lynn says volunteering for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland over the past year has transformed her life.

A member of a stroke support group in Glasgow, Lynn realised she was getting as much from talking to volunteers as she was chatting to fellow stroke survivors. She decided to take the plunge and become a volunteer herself.

“What I enjoy most about volunteering is giving something back. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland has done so much for me personally that I want to repay that. I hear and see the appreciation and happiness in the voices of the people I’m speaking to.

“Volunteering is so worth it for your mental health and for your soul. It’s good soul food. Volunteering resonates and sends ripples of positivity throughout everyone involved.”
