Nella Buisson – Volunteer Driver
“I wanted to volunteer because I have the time. it makes me feel useful, but I also find it rewarding to know that there are so many people being helped. Voluntary work is very important, I love seeing the smile on people’s faces when they open the door and see me standing there with a box of food makes me feel good.
It is not all about the food, but also the chance to chat for a few minutes as many of the recipients haven’t had social contact for some time; this for me is the best thing about being a volunteer driver.
People are so pleased to see me, and are thankful for the box of goodies, often they comment on the comprehensive range of products in the box.
There have been challenges too, I’m quite a small person and as the boxes are very generously packed I now use a sack barrow and this has made delivering boxes possible for me… I just wish that I could do more.”
