Linda Hines MBE: No pay made her powerful

I have a guilty secret. I have favourites.

Among the dozens of brilliant people I’ve interviewed for the Grassroots Channel Podcast, Linda Hines is right up there amongst the ones who really made an impact on me.  She is an unstoppable pragmatist and optimists (and has even begun blogging, although we still need to help her along with this).

Linda is a volunteer director of the Witton Lodge Community Association and has just been awarded her MBE for services to the community in North Birmingham.

It was Linda who told me that “no pay makes me powerful” – something which should be the mantra of volunteers everywhere. Listen to why she does what she does through this link or by clicking on the arrow below. Then you might understand why she has been honoured.
