4 1/2 years ago, my life changed for the better. Volunteering gave me the sense of self-worth I never had as a child and by giving back to the community and helping those in need, a light shone showing me my path.

In 2015, once my world record attempt was achieved, I decided to take time out of face-to-face volunteering and focus my attention on John’s Road to Volunteering.

I’ll be honest…

I missed volunteering! Taking time out to focus on the blog has amplified my love for helping others and the real need in the sector for a spokesperson.

An unbiased, yet passionate individual, who focuses their attention on the people, not the income generated.

This is why for the next few years, JRTV100 is happening!


JRTV100 will help 100 UK charities to promote their volunteering opportunities by getting involved first-hand, giving you the insight into these charities and volunteering roles by someone who has been there and done it.

JRTV100 will be my biggest contribution to society, with every minute given being another source of opinion, experience and motivation, with a vocal point being on roles already on offer, or will be offered in the near future.

Every volunteering role/experience will be shared on the ‘volunteering page‘ relevant to the length of each opportunity, and John’s Road to Volunteering will continue to be much more than just a blog for the sector, but a spokesperson.

JRTV100 is open to charities of all sizes, any sector, and any length of opportunity. Interested in knowing more? Get in contact via this contact form and let’s talk about involving you in the project.

I’m on my largest mission to date, and I will be bringing you along for the journey.
