LRL: What made you want to volunteer for Team Rubicon UK?

Blakey: “For me there was a lot of guilt surrounding the time I served in Iraq in 2003. So much so in my case that I went back out in 2005 as an overseas contractor, with a blissfully naïve view I was able to help restore order and rebuild the country in some way.  The desire to restore/rebuild after devastation has always been with me and TRUK seemed to tick all these boxes, so I signed up to an Induction weekend down in Chilmark at TRUK’s HQ in Wiltshire. I met some really cool people and was so inspired after hearing what they all had to say (that’s delegates and staff alike by the way) and received a heap of fantastic training. Seriously, I can’t praise the staff enough for the job they’re doing at TRUK. Ultimately, the humanitarian field was so appealing and TRUK seemed to find me at just the right moment.”
