“I have been a volunteer at The Elizabeth Foundation for over ten years now. I was working as a paediatric intensive care nurse but I found that I had some time to spare.
“I wanted to put this time to good use and as I had worked previously with Julie Hughes I asked her if there was a need for volunteers. I came along one day to see what it was all about and have loved every single moment of my time spent at The Elizabeth Foundation so far.
“I am a regular fixture at fundraising events such as the Summer Fayre and Christmas Bazaar, specifically in the “tea area”! You get to talk to so many people and it is so rewarding seeing everyone busy shopping at the various stalls, chatting to others, and basically enjoying themselves.
“I love working with the enthusiastic staff and am happy to assist them in the wonderful and inspirational work that they all do. They really make me feel part of the team. I hope to continue my volunteering at the Foundation for many years to come!”
