Why volunteer for Stonepillow?
We asked Steph, our fabulous Head Office volunteer, to share her experience with you.
"I started looking for volunteer opportunities when I retired 3 years ago, I already knew a bit about the work Stonepillow do to help homeless people and I wanted to contribute something towards that.
I volunteer at Head Office once a week doing varied tasks such as banking, writing letters, creating staff identity cards and researching products and services to find solutions. The team I work with are lovely, they always make me feel welcome and valued, they find time to answer my queries and always make sure I have plenty to do. I have also improved my computer skills in this time, which a bonus!
In October, Stonepillow host their annual fundraising event, The Big Sleep Out, in the grounds of Chichester Cathedral. It's a fantastic event and I really enjoy being involved with the preparation beforehand as well as helping out on the day. I would definitely recommend taking part or volunteering at the event, it is great to see people in the local community coming together to raise awareness of homelessness and funds for Stonepillow to be able to continue their brilliant work.
I am proud to volunteer for Stonepillow and always tell people about the vital support they offer homeless people and how much I love my Friday afternoons here!"
