New volunteers in Hackney

New Advance volunteeers in Dalston Curve Garden

There are some new faces in our Hackney services, where customers and staff have been happy to welcome four new volunteers. Ramiro from Ecuador (left), Kevin and Hannah both from South Korea, and Moss from Taiwan (far right), will be helping staff to support customers in the Outreach service.

The volunteers have joined Advance on a one-year placement through the International Cultural Youth Exchange (ICYE) who work to create intercultural learning experiences for young people. They hope the experience of living and working in different countries will benefit local communities and help the volunteers with their personal development and future careers.

The volunteers are pictured with customer, Tony at Dalston Curve Garden. Tony was excited to meet everyone and has set about teaching them all how to play his favourite sport - pool!
