Clare Warren is a volunteer from Lincolnshire whose confidence has rocketed because of her voluntary work.
She said: ” Volunteering and activity has helped me discover what I want to do with my life.
“Through the YMCA Teaching Centre I’ve gained my gym instructor, kettlebell and personal trainer qualifications.
“I’m now working on doing my exercise referral qualification and an NVQ Level 4 in CBT.”
