Colleen's Experiences
 
"I have been volunteering for many years with various local charities, but started at Danetre Day Care about 4 years ago. I help on Mondays with making tea and coffee for the Elderly people who come to the Day Centre, and spend time chatting with them and listening to them. Also, on Fridays once a month I do a Church Service, and Communion is offered to anyone who would like it. The Day Centre clients love to have someone to talk to and to listen to them. I really enjoy being with them and listening to their stories. Some of them are very brave people and have coped with some very difficult situations over the years, and they are an inspiration to me. You feel happy and sad as well, and you get back so much more than you give by volunteering."
