[edit] Information

Operation People Power With Dave Myers Dave Myers assembles a team of celebrities on a mission to find out just what can be achieved when volunteers come together to help others in need. One in three already people volunteer in the UK and Dave draws upon that spirit of getting involved to help community projects, meeting volunteers and those that benefit from the help of others. Dave calls on the help of Nicki Chapman (Wanted Down Under, Escape To The Country), Mark Millar (DIY SOS), Martyn Ashton (a biking legend turned motivator who suffered a crash which left him paralysed) and Juliet Sargent (Tanzanian-born Gold Winner at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016), to muster an army of volunteers to help those who help others.

Dave discovers how green space and being outdoors plays a significant role in our well-being.
