Campus & City Radio 94.4 has added a new, hour-long show to its lineup: Volunteer Stories. A lively mix of guest interviews and indie music Volunteer Stories sees Lettice Wigby interview people about their voluntary work and play songs by musicians who have volunteering experience.
Having volunteer for fifteen years in six countries Lettice was attracted to radio because of its ability to share stories in ways TV cannot.
“I can’t wait to share the stories of incredible people doing extraordinary things. Volunteering changes people’s lives and organisations can’t operate without them. I can’t wait to capture these epic stories and inspire even more people to volunteer and even more organisations to host volunteers.”
To hear Volunteer Stories listen online at 2pm (GMT) on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.
