Cardiff Chronicle #8: the story of VCS volunteering
Alice Campion from VCS Cymru’s Chronicle Project meets Robert Davies – the Founder of VCS – and hears about what inspired him to set up the Charity in 1964 following a summer ‘Work Camp’ in Cardiff’s Tiger Bay. Robert is joined by Laurence Kahn (one of the first VCS Volunteers); Mary Newman MBE (long-term Trustee & current Chair of VCS); John Drysdale (Volunteer Co-ordinator in the 70s) & Martin Pollard (Chief Executive of the Welsh Centre for International Affairs) to reminisce about the early days of a Charity which has been now been opening doors to volunteering in Cardiff for over half a century.
This is an edited version of a programme broadcast on Radio Cardiff on Tuesday 28th February 2017.
Produced by VCS Cymru.
