Volunteer Hall of Fame

Over the past three years we’ve worked with hundreds of volunteers from all over the world! Many have been students from the Manchester universities, and many others have been from a range of partner organisations and charities. We’ve provided trainee placements from young people who’ve not had the same opportunities in life as others, have retired volunteers who bring a wealth of experience to our team, and even have some volunteers who began as students and are now lecturers on the University staff!

We provide placements through partner charities, and are currently working with the Depaul Trust, Pure Innovations, and Work Fit.

But don’t just listen to us… here’s what some of our lovely volunteers have to say about their time at Milk & Honey:

“Milk & Honey is a welcoming community café, where both the customers and the volunteers are friendly and lovely. The atmosphere is great and I love volunteering there! I’ve gained more confidence in my communication skills, as well as work experience and have learnt new skills such as making coffee. If you are looking for somewhere to volunteer, I would definitely recommend Milk & Honey!”

“After working in Milk & Honey for a while, I gradually feel that this was one of the best decisions I had ever made. It is difficult for an international student to integrate into a different cultural society, especially a student from another part of the earth. But by working in Milk & Honey, I made a lot of friends and had a lot of happiness, especially a sense of acceptance. Thank you for taking care of me!”
