Jonathan Edmondson

  1. What’s your volunteer role?Jonathan Edmondson
    I currently volunteer as a befriender and I am part of the fundraising group. Very different roles but both equally rewarding.
  2. How long have you been a volunteer?
    I started volunteering for BEA in October 2014
  3. Why did you get involved?
    I wanted to get involved in helping the local community for a while and a change in roles at work meant that I had a bit more time free on an evening. Having lived in Bramley most of my life I had heard a lot of good things about the work that BEA was doing and decided to get involved.
  4. Three words that sum up BEA for you?
    friends, respect and community
  5. What do you get out of volunteering?
    It has definitely given me a different perspective of the local community, I have met some very interesting people and I have had a lot of laughs along the way.
  6. What else do you like doing?
    I love music and film. I spend way too much time looking for new music and I am always looking for gigs or festivals to go to.
  7. Where were you born?
  8. What’s your favourite film?
    Its hard to choose but possibly Requiem for a Dream
  9. And your favourite book?
    I am appalling at finishing books. I was really enjoying Freakonomics until the dog got hold of it.
  10. Tell us one interesting fact about yourself
    My little brother, is sometimes the voice of Big Brother on TV when the contestants are in the diary room.
