National Volunteers' Week

Mary Russell of Health in Mind

It’s National Volunteers’ Week and we’re applauding the scores of volunteers across Midlothian who are changing lives for the better. Among them is Mary Russell. Mary has been volunteering for around two years now with the mental health charity, Health In Mind. Mary is a befriender. Meeting her client in person is obviously not possible but they are both enjoying a weekly, hour-long video catch up at a set time and day. Mary also volunteers with Volunteer Midlothian and is currently helping an Italian client remotely, to improve her English. Many thanks to Mary and all the hard working volunteers. Your work is much valued.
