"Its a fantastic feeling being able to do something so worthwhile" - Pauline's Volunteering Experience

-A A +A

Pauline is a Volunteer Wellbeing Champion on the Postural Stability project. 

I was bored after taking early retirement, needing something to do. I heard about Eccles Gateway and Salford CVS (Community and Voluntary Services) in an email from my local health centre.

I attended an informal volunteering information session, I liked what I learnt about volunteering and decided to give it a try.

I now help in my local community. I am assisting with Posture Stability mobility exercise classes helping participates with their wellbeing exercises. After the exercise class we enjoy tea, coffee and biscuits and chatting with attendees, about their needs. I find out information for them, either my self or with assistance from Salford CVS via Jessica or Michael. For example, details of local friendship groups and travel information suitable to their needs.

Assisting with the wellbeing of older people at the classes has also helped my wellbeing. Its a fantastic feeling being able to do something so worthwhile.

The saying is true, the more you give, the more you receive. 

Make your spare time as enjoyable as mine and try volunteering!  

Lets make Salford the best, for caring about each other.
