Today is the beginning of Student Volunteering Week! To mark the occasion, we will be running our mini online series: Chevening in the Community.
Jacob Said currently studying MSc international Development at the University of Edinburgh dedicates some of his spare time to the charity Souper Saturday, an organisation providing food to the homeless in Edinburgh.
Jacob says, ‘It is a great way of putting your skills to good use. You should never forget that there is always someone who could use a little help.’
