Volunteer profile

Lynne's Story:

"Since October 2015 I have been volunteering on a weekly basis in the Finance Office and thoroughly enjoy whatever tasks I am set, which can include assisting the HR team.

"Retirement is great but this voluntary work provides me with a focus and I look forward to Thursdays when for 5 hours I am part of a team again, using my skills, and gaining new ones, to support the foundation with the great work it does.  

"I am treated as an equal and working with such a friendly, appreciative and supportive group of people is the icing on the cake.  I can heartily recommend volunteering for The Benjamin Foundation; donating my time and skills to the organisation is satisfying and my self-worth and confidence, which had dipped since retiring, have improved greatly. Sharing experiences and laughter (and cups of tea) with colleagues isn't bad either!"
