Stories and publications TV and radio Chris supports Westbank by volunteering, can you? Westbank Community Health and Care rely on an army of volunteers to help deliver a range of support services to individuals and communities across Devon. This year, we hope to take on even more volunteers to help more people in need across Devon. Hear why Chris volunteers: Chris Walledge from Exminster works four days a week as a lawyer. Four years ago, he began volunteering as a Neighbourhood Friend on Wednesdays. He says, “I spend most of my days staring at a computer screen. It’s really nice to have a change in the middle of the week, to meet people and be able to help them in a very practical way. I found that helping people on my day off actually helped me as well, so it’s a really positive choice and it fits in flexibly with my life.” Last year, our Neighbourhood Friends volunteers received royal recognition for their service during the pandemic with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
