Volunteers Week - Joanne

Joanne, from our Company Secretarial department, shares how she has volunteered to help her local community during the pandemic.

Due to how difficult this past year has been, particularly on my elderly neighbours, I have been volunteering to do regular food shops for those who were unable to leave the house or did not have anyone to do these small tasks for them.

I have also been part of the street messaging group to offer company and support those potentially isolated. By staying in contact with neighbours, I have been trying to help them cope without real-life interactions and keep a sense of normality.

Making a small difference locally has reduced the negative impact on the community and been essential to helping each other through the pandemic.
