A Few Words from the Volunteers…
We invited a few of our volunteers to respond to the statement “Why I Volunteer”. When asked to put this into a few simple words, many of us found this a bit of a challenge before finding the right words! The passion by which our Volunteers serve the Slipstreamers community is apparent in the following collection of quotes from just a handful of the wonderful people who week in week out give up their time freely to provide each member with the opportunities they do.
A: For financial reward
B: Gets me out of a house full of cats
C: Provides a mental stabiliser with an opportunity to develop myself as well as others, in an environment that is far removed from normal workplace pressures.
D: B & C
I volunteer as I believe everyone should give something to make society a better/happier and more equal place. And I volunteer because I enjoy a free cup of tea. 🙂Yvonne Bowler
It’s a bit like a road trip adventure. Once we’ve weathered the storms, fixed the mechanicals, and overcome frustrating obstacles we see the inspiring moments that put it all into perspective – infectious smiles, fears being overcome, confidence developing, boundless enthusiasm. Plus I like the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing I make a difference.Asti Kanaris
