Kieran met with kitchen volunteer Jean and husband and wife volunteers Ernie. Ernie started volunteering as part of the expanded team the charity recruited to support people during the lockdown. Ernie volunteers in the kitchen and then helps his wife who is a volunteer delivery driver.

Speaking after the visit Kieran said “Volunteers do a huge amount for us all, something we learned more than ever during the pandemic. It was great to visit The Wishing Well Project this week to thank and speak to just some of their fantastic volunteer team.”

“They were all clear about how much they enjoyed and got out of volunteering and how it helped them carry on being productive in their retirement. I would encourage everyone to think about volunteering, even if you just have an hour or two a week to spare. Anyone who would like help finding a role that fits you get in touch with me.”
