A Volunteer's story
Comments from some of our Volunteers
“I find that now I am retired, I want to give something back to my local community. Volunteering for carers services has helped me to achieve this, and I have a lot of fun”
“I had been out of work for a while after my caring role ended and I wanted to do something which expanded my skills and experience so that I had the confidence to go back into paid work”
“I love volunteering for a really worthwhile service which really does do a good job and they look after me and value me as a volunteer”

Here is what she had to say:
Appreciating our volunteers
We like to celebrate our volunteers, hosting social events and awards.
Our most recent gathering, Brazil Night, was hosted in our very own community café in Accrington, with homemade Brazilian food, bingo, music, and kindly donated prizes from our Tesco Haslingden Community Champion!
