Volunteer Stories – Harry

Read how after retiring, Harry helped the vaccination effort to give something back.

Having recently, retired Harry decided he wanted to help the vaccination effort and give something back. His time helping with the vaccination centre has taught him a lot; he was not seeking employment before he started to volunteer, however now he feels that his confidence has started returning after spending so long in lockdown.

‘I have really enjoyed volunteering as a steward, particularly at the Peepul Centre; this was such a welcoming venue. The key thing I learned was to listen to everyone and not to make assumptions. I feel very valued as a volunteer on the vaccination programme.

It has been a good experience and thank you for this opportunity.  Willing to continue volunteering and happy to be asked to do other sorts of volunteering.’
