“I have been volunteering for Springfield Mind for a year now and every day has been a rewarding and positive experience. When I first applied I sought a distraction from my current life and to engage in an area which I had a little experience. Over time I have been on a constant learning curve. It is empowering and humbling to support a team that makes a real difference to people who are in distress.”
Paul Thompson, Fundraising Volunteer
“I started last year in July and felt very welcome by all staff and other volunteers. Everyone is very supportive and it's great to feel like I'm making a difference to the service users of Springfield Mind.”
Jagjit Purewal, Wellbeing Hub Volunteer
“I only do about 3 hours office admin a week on a Monday and it gets my week off to a good start. As I retired 14 years ago I really appreciate being allowed to try to get to grips with all the new computer wizardry that has happened since my day. I can only do it because everyone in the Springfield Office is so patient and helpful!”
Lal Clay, Admin Volunteer
