This is Megan, and she volunteers at Tommy’s Tots, our baby and toddler group here at The Parish Trust! We caught up with her during a Tommy’s Tots session to find out more about why she volunteers with us…
How long have you been volunteering with The Parish Trust?
I’ve been volunteering for just over a year.
Why do you volunteer with The Parish Trust?
Because I believe that community is very important. I love working with children and families, so Tommy’s Tots gives me time to meet new people whilst doing something I love. I’m a Christian so it’s also a great way to live out my faith practically.
How has volunteering impacted you personally?
It’s been great to meet new people. As a mum myself, it’s been really good to be able to bring my own children here, to get out the house, socialise and have some adult conversation. That has been really good for my own mental health and wellbeing, and it’s great that The Parish Trust have so many things to offer such a wide range of people.
What is your favourite thing about volunteering?
For me, it’s seeing a community come together, and experiencing a nurturing environment. I also love having fun with the children!
