Catherine a Personal Wedding Manager has been volunteering for C360 for 7 months, being furloughed from her job she found she had time on her hands and wanted to combine volunteering with something that suited her interests. She loves exercise and being outside so becoming a Walk Motivator Volunteer in Finchingfield and Shalford was just up her street.
“I have loved meeting different people and doing something new. I like that the walks can be accessed by anyone of any age and that makes it interesting as you talk to so many people. I like feeling that I’m doing something worthwhile and helping people to get outside and exercise without any pressure.
When the walking stopped during the 2nd lockdown, I took on some welfare calls and these have stood out for me. I have got to know the people that I call quite well. They have told me at different times that they look forward to our calls and I do feel that it’s doing some good to their days. Looking to volunteer? Find something that suits your interests. Be open minded to new things as they might take you by surprise. It’s been very enriching for me and I’m so glad I started doing it.”
