Volunteer Patrick – Shuttledriver

Volunteer Patrick ShuttledriverAs part of National Volunteer Week, we’re celebrating the many interesting and valuable characters who contribute to making Harewood the place that it is….

Why do I volunteer?

I have always had a wish to give back, feeling that I am an extraordinarily fortunate person.

What brought me to it?

Living on the estate gave me the introduction.

What did I do?

Chief Executive of a small group of companies. Also chaired the committee of a newly formed charity called “Life for A Life “which reinforced my love of trees. My family and I own a wood in the Lake District where we planted trees for bereaved people.

What three things do I enjoy?

The people. Doing a bit of good one hopes. The view from the walled garden across the lake, which changes everyday of the year.

What do I love most about Harewood?

The staff and other volunteers. Otherwise it’s just pottering about as it’s a lovely place.
