Our dedicated volunteers explain what Tonic means to them and why they volunteer
Meet the Core Volunteers
Stan has been volunteering for Tonic since it was founded in 2012. Ten years later, he joined the staff team to perform a variety of roles.
“Tonic has been a part of my life for so long and it has truly shaped the person I have become. I have had so many opportunities that I never would have dreamt of.”
Working with Tonic has given me a new lease of life. I love going to different fetes and festivals, and talking to people. I have realised that there is a massive need for what Tonic does, and I love being a part of it.
Many people have been very emotional seeing a mental health charity at gigs - a humbling experience for me to be a part of. The help I give to Tonic is a real tonic for me, and I am still enjoying it in my 70s.
