Denmark Volunteer Reviews
"It was quite a change for me to do a project with such a big group and also in a big city – a very different experience to most projects. It was really good fun and also very interesting to learn about Fair Trade and to take part in the largest festival of its kind in Denmark. I also go to spend 2 weeks in the centre of one of my favourite cities whilst doing something very useful!" Ruth, festival project in Denmark with Concordia Volunteers
