What Our Volunteers Say:
“I love bikes. I love riding them, I love cleaning them and I love fixing them. That’s why I went on a Bike Maintenance course to learn proper skills to keep my own bikes in tip top condition. With my new found skills I wanted to get more practice and Bike Revolution provided the perfect venue to hone these skills. The mechanics have shown me different ways to apply my knowledge on bikes of all shapes and sizes. Volunteering there has been more rewarding than I expected. Taking bikes and refurbishing them into fixed and rideable machines is incredibly satisfying. Some of the donated bikes are in good condition and just need a service, whilst others present more of a challenge to return to a road worthy condition. It’s these bikes that I really get a chance to get my teeth into and oily hands to boot. Knowing that one of the bikes I have fixed has been sold and will be enjoyed again makes me really happy.
Everyone at Outfit Moray and Bike Revolution has made me feel welcome and part of the team. All are truly dedicated to this great charity, professional to a fault and have a great sense of humour. I always look forward to my next day volunteering and the challenges it will bring.”
“I have been working with youth for approximately six years as an educator and adventurous training instructor within the national cadet forces and as a DofE expedition instructor. I started volunteering with Outfit Moray in January 2015, it quickly became apparent to me that I was not simply “one of the volunteers” but that I was 100% “one of the team” – my opinion and experiences were valued and I was able to help in the structuring and development of sessions.
By volunteering with Outfit Moray I have been fortunate to work with age groups that I previously had no experience of, this has benefited me immensely as an adventurous training instructor and broadened my appreciation of how adventurous training can be used to develop and work with youth. These new experiences and skills resulted in me being asked to work on the Holiday and Respite Break in 2015, which was a challenging week but I was personally rewarded in seeing the participants develop new adventurous training skills, confidence and communication skills, something that I am extremely proud to have been apart of. Outfit Moray is an extremely transparent charity, the staff have a clear inclusive philosophy and I feel that I am part of an organisation that is making a difference, I look forward to continuing to volunteer in 2016 and beyond.”
“I moved to Moray a few years ago and started volunteering for Outfit then. It was a great way to meet new people who shared my enthusiasm for the outdoors and allowed me to pass that on to many of Outfit’s clients.
The volunteering system is simple with no obligation, you can do as little or as much as you like, even if you have a full time job. The activities that Outfit run are varied, plentiful and most of all great fun they’ve also helped me learn new skills such as outdoor first aid and rock climbing.
Coasteering, bushcraft and surfing are just a few of my favourites. The young people I’ve had a chance to work with have been really amazing, watching them conquer their fears and learning different skills has been inspiring.
The team of instructors and staff at Outfit are all very friendly they are approachable and relaxed whilst remaining professional, I’ve always felt like a valued member of the team and never felt out of my depth.
I’m looking forward to broadening my experience next year by helping out in Bike Revolution, Outfit’s bike recycling project. The future is looking exciting for Outfit, and I hope to remain a part of this great charity and help the young people of Moray with the many adventures Outfit will no doubt supply.”
