I was very keen to volunteer in some capacity with the organisation so initially meeting with the Volunteer Co-ordinator was very beneficial for me as I was able to talk to her about the volunteering opportunities available and discuss the ones which I thought may be of interest  to me.

As I am very keen on knitting and needle-craft I decided to volunteer in the Women’s Befriending group where I work and encourage the ladies in all aspects of knitting, arts and crafts etc.

We make  things which we can give to family and friends and also at Christmas and Easter we make articles which we can sell in our Charity shop, I have also learned a lot from the women and we all enjoy nattering as we knit or while making other things,  the women all agree they really enjoy the group which gives me great satisfaction.
