I really enjoy volunteering with the African friendship society. They have a special way of bringing the African culture to a city that really needs it. The joy of bringing people of all ages and from all walks of life to shed light into the various parts of Africa was really great to see. This is from anything from story telling, dancing, drumming and especially the food. I just wanted to do my bit for the centre and to help people experience the African culture, so this was the perfect role for me.
