Some of the nice things that our volunteers and friends have said about us and the work WiSE does in supporting the local community:
As a ‘Sunshine Cafe’ volunteer, it is a pleasure to see people living with dementia and their carers come together on a Wednesday afternoon to socialise, be entertained or involved in activities over a cup of tea and cakes. For many of our ‘friends’ who gather for two hours, it is a pleasure to get out of the house and mix with like minded people.
As a volunteer, I attend the ‘Sunshine Cafe’ in Collingham Village Hall each month, to help serve refreshments. Our ‘friends’ are very appreciative and seem to enjoy the afternoon’s activities. Carers are always keen to chat and enjoy in ‘normal’ conversations. To me, it is a fulfilling experience and I hope by taking time out to add a little variety and warm environment for our ‘friends’ , we are enriching their lives.
I think it’s great that a young volunteer is visiting Dad and I know my father very much enjoys and appreciates the time they spend together. Having someone visit is a very positive experience, especially in light of dad’s limited mobility. Many thanks for setting this up.
Dear All, just a little note to thank you and your volunteer befriender for all your help and support this year. It was very much appreciated.
Dear All, thank you so much for all the help you have given us with mum. We really appreciate the time and effort you have spent in advising us and pointing us in the right direction. The couple who have befriended her sound lovely and mum seems really happy.
Many thanks for your prompt attention, in helping me out with my garage door. I really appreciated the help
A big thank you for you and your team for erecting two new fence panels, the young boys did a great job, for which I am very thankful.
