My story: Pamela Johnson, Trustee
'As a volunteer trustee I've had the chance to share the passion of all the team and help to increase resources so that they can carry on doing what they love. This has built a real sense of achievement for Babylon Arts and has had a positive affect on audiences and local stakeholders in general. Meeting new people has also made me feel part of something outside of work, friends and family and while it has been hard work and involved challenge, its also been fun and I've had a great time doing it!
