JANET'S STORY

Janet Volunteer.jpg

I volunteer every Thursday with the Fundraising team and support them on the administration side such as writing thank you letters and updating database records and generally doing any other fundraising tasks that need doing.

I started volunteering at the Brightwell in September 2017. I’d retired from work in the April and after enjoying a summer of leisure I decided that I would like to get a voluntary job at a local charity where I could meet and work with lots of people and also keep my brain active …… and I found everything I wanted here at the Brightwell. I really enjoy having the regular routine of coming into the Centre each Thursday as it is such a friendly, welcoming place.

I really enjoy getting the opportunity to chat with the members, the Brightwell team and other volunteers and luckily there is always plenty of work to do which is good for me as I ‘m happiest when I am busy!
