Recent feedback from a volunteer:
"Thanks for the opportunity to volunteer at The Melting Pot. It's given me invaluable experience that wouldn't otherwise be available to me (looking for a job is difficult where employers want 'more experience' but aren't willing to give people the opportunity to develop that experience). TMP's full of really interesting people and I genuinely enjoy working with TMP staff. I count myself lucky!" Ashley
