“Hi, my name is Karen. I am a volunteer and a wheelchair user. I volunteer two mornings a week at my local
volunteer centre and though they are on the first floor, Luckily, there is a lift.
I enjoy the warm friendly atmosphere and look forward to meeting my colleagues every week. As a person I have come out of my shell a lot since I started volunteering and I communicate better with people. I also enjoy the social
aspect. Volunteering gives me something to look forward to on a weekly basis.
It’s always been my wish to work in an office and I feel my dream has come through. As well as volunteering at the volunteer centre I regularly help out with bag packs and Bucket collections.
To say Volunteering has enhanced my life is an understatement.
“I love Volunteering.”
