It’s Volunteers’ Week, and we want to say a massive thank you to all our amazing volunteers. Ever considered giving your time for a great cause? Here’s why our volunteers think you should!
“My job for 39 years was in sales so I love it. I love the atmosphere and the support from staff and fellow volunteers. And I love speaking to the customers about what has come in that’s new.”
“I help with the practical things. Kathryn can’t walk long distances, so we go shopping together and browse as many shops as we can. Otherwise, I’ll pop around and we’ll have a chat. We also like to watch DIY SOS together. It’s so worthwhile, even if you’re just making someone a cup of tea.”
“After I retired I really wanted to put something back. What I do helps to free up funds so the money can go to where it’s needed. I really feel like I’m helping a cause and an organisation that makes a big difference to people. It’s great to know that whatever small difference I’m making, it’s helping.”
“I was so impressed with the compassion shown to my wife by Marie Curie. I love getting the community involved – you make lots of new friends. You’ve got to lead by example. For me, it’s all about giving back to Marie Curie for the support they provided to my family, and continue to provide for so many others.”
“It’s great experience before I go to uni to study film to work in a similar department. It’s also great for my people skills. I have a lovely team that I get to work with. They’re very kind and understanding and they walk through everything with me.”
“I’m going back to university in September to study physiotherapy. Volunteering 100% helped me get on the course. I applied last year and didn’t get on so I thought: ‘OK, let’s broaden my experience.’ I’ve learnt a lot already and it’s just a really friendly place to be.”
