It's a very well organised service and the training available is excellent. The volunteers and coordinators work closely together as a team and go the extra mile to support each other during service hours. Volunteering for MacMillan you can meet some wonderful people, develop all kinds of skills, and all they ask for in return is a couple of hours of your time a week. Its a fantastic role I really enjoy being a part of and I'd happily recommend it to anyone.
