Volunteering at Bury Red Door:
The role is very varied; I help with lots of office work and help with fundraising before the centre opens. I make brews and talk with service users during the drop in session. I am also on the steering committee which I enjoy as it enables me to feel really involved with the project as a whole.
Spending time getting to know the service users, is one of the aspects of volunteering that I enjoy most. At first it can be difficult as they don’t know you but once they get to know you they start to open up and you can actually make difference to someone’s day.
