For Anna Reeder being a Cancer Council volunteer means she is able to give back to the community and make a difference in people's lives.
Ms Reeder works as a transport to treatment driver after she noticed a call out looking for drivers to help people attend medical appointments.
"I started volunteering and received training to become a transport driver with the Cancer Council a month ago," she said.
"The organisation needed extra people to help out to drive patients to their appointments because some may not have family, friends or access to transport so this services helps them.
"I was going through cancer treatment last year and decided to move back to Orange from Brisbane to have my family's support and thought it would be nice to give back to the community."
Ms Reeder said the experience has helped the passengers feel comfortable and relaxed when they need to go to appointments.
"I have done a couple of trips so far and it's nice to be able to get to know the people and to have a social connection with them," she said.
"In time as the restrictions lift, I think there will be an increase in shifts to transport patients to their appointments."
As this week is National Volunteer Week, she said volunteering has been a big part of her life as she used to work in the events industry where she frequently volunteered.
"It's easier than some people may think, you get to meet new people, help out and reskill," she said.
