Volunteering With Us – Pauline

10th April 2020

Hello I?m Pauline and I volunteer at Community Solutions.

I usually volunteer on reception, answering calls and welcoming people. I also help by inputting information from the groups and telephone befriending services and I clear up the meeting rooms after meetings trying to keep them clean. I do this two afternoons a week it?s great because it?s such a worthwhile place, they do so much good for the community and I get the most out of it.

I found out about Community Solutions when the Jobcentre suggested I attend the Mindfulness course, and I heard about volunteering there. Someone came into the session and talked about volunteering, so I put my name down. I got told about the volunteer induction course at community solutions and decided to go and see what it was all about.

If I wasn?t volunteering, I would be stuck at home looking at four walls. I?m not very good at getting out much. So, it gives me a lot of confidence and something to do. Volunteering two afternoons a week really helps me to do something for the community. Giving something back if you will and doing my part.

I think volunteering does a person as much good as they do helping other people. It?s brilliant how much it helps. It?s hard to put it into words it?s that good.

I would 100% recommend volunteering. It’s worth doing and it?s for everyone.

Stay safe – Pauline
