Before becoming a volunteer at Community Central Hall, Donald was a Law Accountant for 19 years. He first came to CCH with the Glasgow Orchestral Society, who would use the hall for their rehearsals. When the Glasgow Orchestral Society changed their rehearsal premises, Donald remained involved with CCH by becoming the volunteer Archivist.
Donald has taken on many roles within the organisation, including his main role which is the volunteer Archivist. His duties include the archiving of materials from finance, travel logs and various CCH projects. Throughout his time with us, Donald has managed to create a catalogue system for our archive, helping CCH to become more efficient when it comes to locating items within the archive.
Alongside volunteering as CCH’s Archivist, Donald takes part in the Fareshare food collections. He has previously volunteered to do gardening with children from Happy Days Nursery in the community garden and woodland area. Donald also enjoys covering reception and engaging with service users.
Outside CCH, Donald volunteers with the Fall Clinic once a week. He also remains part of the Glasgow Orchestral Society.
Donald enjoys using his skills and experience to help CCH progress its archiving systems. He feels identified with the building and believes that his role gives him a sense of purpose.
Donald has been a volunteer Archivist for Community Central Hall since March 2012. This year, Donald celebrates his 6th year with us. We have seen the difference Donald’s volunteering has made and would like to thank him for his hard work and dedication to Community Central Hall.
