Local college student, Paige has been volunteering with us for six months, on the Here For You and Springboard service.

In that time she has assisted with group facilitation, supporting service users to engage with sessions and helping make them feel welcome. She has helped with our weekly coffee mornings - probably lost count of the amount of teas and coffees we have asked her to make - and done a lot of talking and even more listening.

She is taking a well earned summer break but stopped by first, to say goodbye and we asked her about her experiences

It’s been my pleasure, I am glad I have helped out and made a contribution to your service.

It’s been a pleasure knowing the staff and the service users and I'll miss you all.

I wish you all the best for the future and your goals. The past 6 months have been amazing and it will definitely be good for me in the future.

Please send my regards to the service users at Springboard and tell them how much I have enjoyed working with them, how much I’ll miss them and I hope the best for them too, they should never forget what incredible individuals they are.

We are grateful for all her time and all her hard work - and the chocolates she brought us all!
