What attracted you to volunteering for TWAM and to this role in particular?

I was introduced to TWAM by someone from church the day I retired - at that time I never imagined I would end up running a site!

Tell us briefly about a typical day for you at the centre?

A typical day normally starts by me setting up what tools need to be refurbished ready for that days volunteers.  Whilst they are volunteering as well as doing some refurbishment myself I’m on hand to provide them with any help they need

As a volunteer yourself, what is your favourite thing about volunteering ?

It's great to get out and meet other people and not get bored but at the same time to know you're making a real difference

What attracted you to volunteering for TWAM and to this role in particular?

I think that one of the biggest attractions for me was the opportunity to learn new skills whilst supporting a good cause at the same time.

 

What is a typical volunteering shift for you like?

A typical day at the centre can be quite varied.  I unlock, make tea, chat to the ‘inmates’ (Also known as the other volunteers!),  unload cars bringing tools, work on refurbishing tools, sort tools and wash up. Whatever needs doing I am happy to do it

 

What is your favourite thing about volunteering?

We have a great mix of people volunteering at the Kenilworth centre so one of my favourite things is meeting with all the different people.
