Sajda Raza, general volunteer for Green Guardians project run by Woodfarm Education Centre
Sajda works full-time and has family commitments, but after taking part in Green Guardians project activities, found time to work as a volunteer. She was instrumental in helping to start a collection of unsold food from a local Greggs shop.
"Being involved in volunteering has allowed me to be able to talk about climate change and social responsibility from an actively engaged point of view rather than as a spectator" - Sajda Raza
