Volunteer – Richard
I recently met a new Remap volunteer to discuss how we could make a stand for a paralysed man to play his music synthesiser while lying in bed. It is great to be able to use our engineering skills to make something unique like this; it makes a really big difference to someone’s quality of life. It is a win-win as we not only make the situation better but also get great satisfaction ourselves from knowing we have made a difference.
My local Remap group has been fortunate in the last few months to double in size, as having more members allows us to respond more quickly to requests. We also help each other by providing ideas of how to solve the tasks.
Being involved in Remap has allowed me to gain satisfaction in both helping people and using my engineering skills to solve technical challenges. A life affirming experience!
