Now 14 years old, his non-stop energy, passion for the community, charming and funny personality makes Callum, Callum! Recently he was involved with our T.I.E. project and played Tybalt in our Shakespeare's adaption of 'Romeo and Juliet' on the Redwood Estate (above left).
We are proud to have this young man involved with the Big Local and look forward to seeing him continue his youth leadership development with us.
A great inspiration and positive role model to other young people in our community.

Why I volunteer
I like to talk and engage with people and volunteering for the Big Local allows me to get out of the house. I also enjoy making new friends, helping people in the community who needs things done, such as gardening and cleaning up. I am really helpful and I’ve been told I am really funny, however I can be serious and I can be a bit silly sometimes.

What have been my experiences
What do I get out of volunteering?
Callum involved with planning our summer youth campaign and helping out at the cooking club.
What you get out of volunteering is that you get to meet new people, have a laugh and work with different types of people from various cultures, backgrounds and ages. I have made so many friends in the local area and I feel more connected to everyone and happy to be involved with Heston West Big Local.
