What Volunteering Means to me | Bayo Igoh


Volunteering lets you show that you genuinely care about the state of your surroundings both culturally and economically.

And helping out with causes I care about, helps me to raise the collective floor of Lewisham’s burgeoning business community.

? Why build a business in a place if you don’t see it having a bright future?  

I took on the lead role in Lewisham not only because I run a small business in Lewisham but because I live here too. I care about the longevity of my community and its people, socially, environmentally, economically and culturally. 

Without doubt, being part of Lewisham’s burgeoning business community will reward all who are genuinely involved with ample opportunities to expand their businesses –  it provides an intrinsic sense of accomplishment.

Volunteering is a great way to earn that sense of accomplishment that we all need from time to time in order to keep our confidence up.

Completing tasks for your volunteer organisation can be especially effective at getting you back on track to being productive at your own business.

By giving back to the community, you show them first-hand how volunteering makes a difference and how good it feels to help other people and enact change.

success is not failure

It’s also a valuable way for you to get to know organisations in the community and find resources and activities that benefit a wider circle of businesses owners – doing good is also good for business.
