The thing I like most about volunteering is the sense of community spirit. Being able to meet new people that you wouldn't ordinarily come into contact with and giving something back to help others in your local area. It's extremely rewarding.

In volunteering for Age UK Bromley and Greenwich, I enjoy the role of being a little problem solver for a person in temporary difficulty, by helping with shopping and offering company. Even little things can lift off big worries for anyone housebound.
I am a good listener and by giving my wholehearted attention, aim at helping the client feel in pleasurable company with a reliable support at hand; I look forward to my next visit and am always rewarded by seeing a reciprocity of feelings.
