Sue Litchfield was part of a DMU group studying Health and Wellbeing in Society who went to Mallorca in August last year to work with Street Angels, volunteer teams who patrol the resort's nightlife district, providing first aid and other assistance to partygoers.

Sue said it was a memorable trip adding: “Different cultures and backgrounds give us perspectives of looking at problems, so we can find solutions together to help everyone.

“I learned so much on the trip, especially from the diverse range of students who participated and the incredibly knowledgeable staff who went with us from DMU.”

Fine Art student Amber Jesson took part in a previous DMU Global volunteering opportunity.

She said: “Applying for this experience was probably the best decision I've ever made. My experience was truly amazing. Not only have I met the loveliest people and made friends all over the world, I have been able to help change lives, even if it’s in the smallest way possible. That's something that I'll forever be proud of.”
