‘I volunteer to give back for some of the pleasure I get from doing things at the Maltings. It is also fun to be able to steward at events which I enjoy especially for National Theatre screened plays and films. The main reason for volunteering was to give me a purpose in life.’ – Marion Nicholson, Volunteer
