Making a difference in your local community
Colleagues Caroline Phipps and Becki Mitchell have been supporting the Farnham Group in a new session, to get involved in community group activities. The session involves researching the local town to find local groups and activities they can join.
One opportunity they have found is volunteer work at the local Community Centre. The group arranged to meet with the manager so they could talk about what volunteering tasks they may be able to help with. They all soon got stuck into a range of tasks. Hilary and Clare B were busy tidying the outside area by doing some litter picking, Clare W helped to test out and sort some colouring pens for the kids club they run, while Suzanne helped to organise all the food items being donated.
The group all really enjoyed their morning. It is an excellent opportunity for them to gain work experience skills and socialise with the other volunteers. They are excited for their upcoming visit and to see everyone at Hale Community Centre again.
