"I think that one of the best ways to integrate into a community is to get stuck into volunteering. Volunteering is important because it fosters civic responsibility and helps us understand the power of community" - Dan-Tam Nguyen, Community Conservation volunteer 🌳 #iwillweek @studenthubs @iwill_campaign

"I love volunteering with Forest Schools because I get the chance to be outside and get out of the Oxford bubble a bit. One of my favourite sessions that we did involved showing the children how to light a fire and then we all sat round and had hot chocolate and marshmallows" - Ben Farmer, Forest Schools volunteer 🍁 You can read Ben's story, and others, on the Oxford Hub Medium series! #iwillweek @iwill_campaign @studenthubs

Happy Hallowe'en! 🍁 If you're carving pumpkins tonight, why not try out some of the pumpkin recipes on our blog? 🎃 It's terrifying that 18,000 tonnes of pumpkin goes to waste each year, so why not reuse them tomorrow in a delicious recipe? 🕸 Find the link to our blog in the bio! 🦇 #pumpkinrescue #happyhalloween #squashfoodwaste

Lovely day to be out and about in Oxford! ☀️☀️☀️ This morning the team has been up at the JR hospital meeting new volunteers who'll be providing company and activities to patients on wards. We've also been joining the dots and discussing priorities with Oxfordshire Stronger Communities Alliance.
