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.
Thank you so much for your assistance, I do not know how I would manage without your support.
The Volunteer Centre adviser was great, providing information about all of the possible opportunities she thought would match my interests. The referral process exceeded my expectations. I have taken on different roles and am still volunteering there. I wouldn’t go anywhere else now
To everyone who worked and helped at last Sunday’s Christmas afternoon tea. Thank you very much. I really enjoyed myself. I spoke to people I had not seen for at least 30-40 years.
Dear Donna, I’m writing on behalf of the Bishampton Gardening Club to say a big thank you for hiring us the bus for our Open Gardens last Sunday. It makes a huge difference to have some transport and all the visitors who used it were very appreciative.
I was delighted to meet Annie your volunteer driver and we are very grateful to her for giving up a large part of the Sunday to drive the bus. Everyone I spoke to said she was so helpful and reliable. We were delighted with the number of people who visited the gardens on a very hot day! Although we don’t have all the final figures in yet we should be able to make generous donations to our charities. Once again many thanks for your help and we look forward to receiving your bill in due course.
It was a pleasure to meet the volunteer recruitment team to talk through suitable opportunities. Together, we narrowed it down to roles offered by five organisations and I was given the chance to visit each before making a decision. This is a super service.

At the initial interview, the Volunteer Centre adviser was great, providing information about all the possible opportunities she thought would match my interests. My details were passed to my chosen organisation and, although I was advised that it might take a few days before they would call me, the referral process exceeded my expectations as the manager called me almost the same day and we got a date arranged to meet up right away. I am delighted with my new volunteering role.
I really enjoy helping others and, as I get to know clients and gain a greater perspective of their life and challenges, I also gain a greater appreciation of my own life.
We know what fantastic work you do within the community and if this donation helps that to continue we will all be delighted.
