Craven Arms Community Centre Volunteer
I started at CasCA in January. I volunteer and sort coffees and teas out for meetings and I get refreshments ready for those who come in on a day to day basis so they can help themselves. I do the dishwasher – and I’ve now decided I want one myself!
Everyone is very friendly, even people I’ve not seen before who just come in for meetings. They always say, ‘Hello’ and you just get talking really.
I did a Happiness course here and it did me good. A lot of people have been through the same sort of things as me. It’s good to know you’re not alone.
I get computer help from Adrian. He’s very good at explaining things well. He’ll go over things until I can do it and then we move on. I know I’m really learning a lot.
I’m also going to do a Want to Work course soon.
I think I’m more outgoing since I’ve been here and I don’t let myself be taken for granted any more. I know I’m worth more and I’m not just going to take second best.
