EwanWhen did you start volunteering at Oxfam Birmingham?

I started volunteering at Oxfam Birmingham around March 2012, it’s been long enough now that I can’t remember the precise date I began.

Why did you start volunteering at Oxfam?

I have actually volunteered at Oxfam previously from 2006 – 2010, but the reason I started again in 2012 was that I have always loved books and wanted to help out.

What’s your favourite book?

I am one of those people that finds it hard to have a favourite anything, I see each new book as a chance to enter a new world. As for favourite authors, I can give you Ian M. Banks and Terry Pratchett among a much larger list.


Ewan, can you tell us a little about yourself?

I suppose that the one thing I enjoy more than reading is writing, it is something that allows me to create my own worlds.

One thing that is really good about volunteering at Oxfam, is all the people I meet and get to work with. Everybody is different and they all have their own stories to tell.
