Sophie – Volunteer Dog Walker
“I walk a beautiful black Labrador once a day.
Having recently moved to the Lewisham area and when the need for more volunteers was made in response to Covid-19 and lockdown I thought it was an important time to get more involved in the community.
I have been lucky to be volunteering for a wonderful lady and her husband, and the bonus of dog walking has been great! We feel we are all benefiting – the dog is walked (happy dog), the owners are grateful that their dog has had a daily walk (happy owners) and I have loved the chance to be outside and getting to walk their wonderful dog (happy volunteer)!
I have been very fortunate to be in a position which has allowed me to volunteer and the chance to give something back to the community during this time has been important to me.”
