Flexible and fun

Andrea's story

I can honestly say my visits are a real joy

Andrea, volunteer

Andrea started volunteering with us in June 2014 and still really enjoys the time she spends with the residents.

“I get on well with the residents and support them in different ways according to what they want to do on the day. I’ve been on various trips with individuals to the cinema, to cafés for coffee and cake, to the museum and for afternoon tea, where we have a lovely relaxing few hours.

I can honestly say my visits are a real joy.

It can be as simple as a walk in the park with someone. I help out at the monthly skittle evening and the weekly walking group, which I love. I give what time I can, to fit around my job, so sometimes I have four hours a week and sometimes 10, but it’s the flexibility that suits me.”
