“Volunteering is my opportunity to help others”

Zoe Stott says volunteering is something that everyone should experience at some point in their life…A young woman is sitting on the ground and patting a golden Labrador, whle smiliing at the camera

“There are people in the world who don’t have as many benefits in life as you do, or the same opportunities that you have,” says Zoe.

“When you volunteer, you see the world differently, and it makes you understand it a bit more.”

Giving a few hours of her time each week to help with fundraising events at Guide Dogs Tasmania, the 20-year-old says volunteering allows her to relax, switch off her “university brain”, and do something productive with her spare time.

“When I hear how Guide Dogs are giving people the freedom to get around safely, it makes me really appreciate that volunteering is my opportunity to help others.”

And the more time she spends helping out with Guide Dogs Tasmania, the more Zoe can see the benefits that come from giving her time to the organisation.

“When I hear how Guide Dogs are giving people the freedom to get around safely, it makes me really appreciate that volunteering is my opportunity to help others,” says Zoe.
