I’ve been driving for the Volunteer Centre for 16 years and absolutely love it. As a driver you meet some really good characters and nice people. I’m helping them and they are helping me as I have to be doing something with my time otherwise I get restless and stressed out at home.
This is the only Volunteer Centre that’s been in touch with me since I signed up to Do-it – despite showing interest in some others. I think you have been great. I wouldn’t go anywhere else now.
As a community organisation, we value the amazing range of skills offered by volunteers recruited through the Volunteer Centre’s bespoke service. Together they promote our ethos, support the wellbeing of our clients and muck-in at events!
My volunteer experience enabled me to practice my Microsoft Office skills and increased my confidence, which helped me to learn new skills and return to work. I appreciated being consulted on how to assist with change and enjoyed working within a very upbeat fantastic office team.
Once again, we are very appreciative of the work you and your volunteers do.
Thanks for the sterling work your driver did at our Open Gardens Day yesterday. Brilliant service
Thank you so much for your assistance, I do not know how I would manage without your support.
We know what fantastic work you do within the community and if this donation helps that to continue we will all be delighted.
The volunteer recruitment process exceeded my expectations and they found me a brilliant place to volunteer.
I retired at 67 in December 2015 and was determined to keep active. I visited the Volunteer Centre at Pershore and they made me very welcome. In an interview, the advisor gained background info from me and offered eight written ‘job descriptions’ which helped me decide. I selected Age UK and their Home from Hospital Service.
This is for people just discharged after an operation who need help at home. They receive a weekly visit (two hours) for six weeks. The roles carried out could be shopping, cleaning, trips to outpatients/pharmacy etc. I received excellent training from Age UK and all my fuel paid. All in all, very rewarding and the Clients were genuinely very grateful. I have since taken on another volunteering role as a Trustee. I strongly recommend volunteering to get you out and about and active, in a worthwhile way.
