Craig O’Brien – Course Zone Kiltie
Craig is a self-confessed Trekky Techie. Channelling his inner geek, he works as a technical support analyst for a mobile phone company. Craig’s compassion for others drew him into the Kiltwalk’s volunteering ranks. He knows that a simple smile, cuddle or kind word can make even the worst days seem brighter.
“Volunteering is something that you get the bug for. Once you start giving your time and you see the smiles on people’s faces or you hear the many stories of those taking part, how can you not want to be there for more? Even in the worst of weathers or on the longest of days there’s another story to be heard or a cuddle to be given and you realise that you have the easy bit.
For me it’s all about being there for others in their times of need. The whole experience just makes you want to come back for more.”
