A group of students called the Lloyds Scholars carried out 11 community projects over the course of the last academic year, including supporting patients at West Heath Hospital, working with adults with learning disabilities and maintaining community gardens in a variety of areas. The scholars’ degrees are supported by Lloyds Banking Group, and volunteering is part of the agreement they make with the organisation.

The Lloyds Scholars won the University of Birmingham Guild Award for Outstanding Local Impact and recently won the Lloyds Banking Group Volunteering Award.

Do you volunteer? If so, what do you do and why? Shout about the wonderful things you do here!

To me that's not fully volunteering. I'm sure they're doing really great stuff, but if there incentivised by money I don't class it as volunteering. Sorry.

Yeah, the credit has to go to Lloyds and the scheme itself. It's helping people from lower incomes access education, as well as providing labour to community projects free of charge.

So, they’ve been paid to do that? So that’s not volunteering?
