“I moved to Shaldon and didn’t really know anyone. I read about Volunteering in Health in the local paper and thought it would be a good way to meet new people as well as getting involved with and helping my new community. I was right!”
Pauline, Trim Teign Project
Pete, Volunteer Driver
“I often travel to London to visit my family so I needed a voluntary opportunity that was really flexible. Sue and I have now become great friends and we have a lovely time together.”
Basia, Volunteer Befriender
“My befriender is an incredible lady and has made such a happy difference to my life. She has not only become a dear friend but she is also my music teacher (piano) and scrabble partner (she always wins!) and above all she is always consistent and cheery!”
