Volunteering at Friends of Nature – Copey Learning Centre was an experience I will cherish very dearly. From the enthusiastic, warm students, to the support of the school community and the kindness of the host families. Not to mention the stunning natural surroundings, I felt truly spoiled. Thank you for inviting me into your community – I hope to return again soon!
