Lydia Allegretto

Where do you volunteer?

I'm the 2017/18 SU Volunteering Officer, Challenge Officer for RAD and Project Leader of Penryn Produce.

Why do you volunteer?

I started because I loved being able to do something that had an immediate impact. Now it’s all about supporting students looking for the same experience.

What has been your most rewarding moment?

Without a doubt, setting up an entirely new project on campus which combines volunteering and sustainability, two things that are really important to me.

What would you say to someone thinking about volunteering?

Go for it! There are so many great opportunities out there and if there isn’t the perfect club for you, why not set it up? It’s really rewarding when you see something you’re passionate about succeed!
