I have been an active community volunteer for many years on projects aimed at food insufficiency, substance abuse, mental health, and senior services. So I am always excited to see clever ways to spread the word on the joys of volunteering. Mural artists, Graffiti Life, have collaborated with papercut artist, Poppy Chancellor, to create London’s largest ever paper cut. They’ve transformed a brand new design by Chancellor, into a five-meter mural in Ebor Street, Shoreditch, London showing how volunteering is an enjoyable and rewarding experience that can build relationships in the community.
The mural shows a group of women giving each other piggybacks with the slogan “Do It For Others”. The project is supported by NCVO, an organization that encourages volunteering and the positive impact it has on society. To discover more check out ncvo.org.uk.
