Ian is a “tremendously humble man with a ‘can do’ attitude to life”. He has been volunteering with the Civil Service Retirement Fellowship for the past eight years. He is part of both their two befriending schemes; National Visitors Network and the Phone Buddy Scheme but also, provides community transport in his local area. He is enabling socially isolated older people to enjoy friendship and positive relationships not only with himself but in their local area. Over the past four years, he has consistently topped the list of volunteers undertaking the highest volume of calls and visits.
