“I have been a volunteer for HOPE for four years now and it has changed my life. I have gained qualifications that have helped me develop new skills. I enjoy working at HOPE because I enjoy working as part of the team and enjoy working with the members and those in need of help and support. Georgie is a great person to volunteer for as she is always there for everybody. I have learned a great deal from volunteering and I would recommend HOPE to anyone looking to volunteering or those in the area considering joining."
Do you want to help bring a smile to a lonely older person? You can do this by helping at one of our groups, helping with refreshments, listening, helping with a concern or worry, maybe assist someone to try a new activity. There are many ways to volunteer at HOPE and it is one of the best things I have done and the most rewarding. Please come and join us/me, your helping hands and smile are always welcome.
I felt I volunteering really made a difference to myself as it felt I was giving something back to the community. One of the members of the group held my hand and said thank you, which gave me pride in the fact I had taken the time to go and volunteer
Had an amazing time at HOPE Stroke club. Such a fantastic charity and really feel like you are contributing to making a difference
