"Volunteering in sure start"

About: Mansfield Woodhouse Children's Centre

(as a volunteer/advocate),

I have been volunteering for year. It's led me to community activities. As a result meeting new people.

It's nice to get out the house, and at the same give something back.

My son is due to start school soon, and as a result of that it's given me more opportunities, and confidence. I've also met lots of new people since moving here.

I moved from out of the area and didn't know anyone so this being beneficial to me and my son.

Thank you sure start. I'm looking forward to the next year.

Thank you letting the centre know how volunteering has benefited yourself and your son. It is lovely to hear how it has helped you to make friends and I do hope you will continue to volunteer once your son starts school.

I am sure that the workers a the centre are very grateful for your contribution and see you as a valued member of the Children's Centre Team.

Kind regards
