My time volunteering at the Scottish Dolphin Centre is filled with great memories and experiences. I learnt so many new skills - it gave me a huge boost in confidence especially with regards to public speaking and the training I received was invaluable.

Every member of staff working at the centre is so helpful and welcoming, they really make you feel part of the WDC family. Oh, and the view and the dolphins....ďAMAZING!!!'
