How long have you been volunteering with The Parish Trust?
Since The Parish Trust was founded back in 2019.
How do you volunteer with The Parish Trust?
I am so proud to be involved with The Parish Trust. Aside from my trusteeship. I’ve volunteered with the charity in other ways. At the start of the COVID-19 lockdown, I was involved in helping to set up the CARE Project. I helped with the accounts, training volunteers in using the phone system, and delivery of food parcels and prescriptions.
How has volunteering impacted you personally?
I became very ill after contracting Coronavirus, and volunteering has helped me by giving me focus and purpose. I sustained a brain injury and another serious health condition following getting Covid, and being part of such an amazing organisation has helped my recovery.
What is your favourite thing about volunteering?
Helping other people and using skills that I have to help the team to deliver all that they do for the community.
