Mikes Volunteer Story

"The support, feedback and encouragement from NEWCIS allowed me to become a confident photographer."

Volunteering Story

Early in 2018 we placed an article in the NEWCIS newsletter asking for any photographers to get in touch. With the development of a new website and lots going on at NEWCIS we were in need of high quality photographs to help promote the work we were doing with carers.

Mike got in touch offering his services as a very keen amateur photographer. We quickly snapped him up and got him to work taking photos at various NEWCIS events. Since then Mike has become more involved with NEWCIS and has gone on to receive support as a carer himself.

Welsh Veteran's Award Nomination

Mike not only volunteers with NEWCIS but as a Community First Responder with the Ambulance Service and helps to organise a veterans support group. He was nominated for a Welsh Veteran’s Award for services to the community and became a finalist.
