Appeared in BioNews 1050

The Progress Educational Trust (PET) – the charity that publishes BioNews – recently participated in Volunteers' Week, an annual celebration (led by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations) of the contributions people make through volunteering.

PET marked the occasion with the short videos below, in which the charity's longstanding volunteer Daniel Malynn discusses his experiences and how he has benefited from them.

(If you cannot see the videos below, go here to view them.)

If you might be interested in volunteering for PET, please get in touch by emailing

Staff and students from the University of Dundee's Human Clinical Embryology and Assisted Conception team are currently running, walking and cycling the 966km distance from Dundee to Copenhagen, to raise funds for PET – please sponsor them here.

Follow PET on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook or Instagram to keep up-to-date with future videos.
