Our Volunteers


Volunteering is new to me, my first session was on New Years Eve 2018.  I was greeted warmly by the team made up of staff and volunteers, but I felt very apprehensive going into the unknown.  I was happy to do whatever needed doing.  My day was made up of chatting to clients, making teas and coffees with at least 4 sugars in and sorting through the clothes and shoes mound into some order.  At the end of my first day I explained that I could give up a minimum of one day a month but would do more if I could.  I came away that day feeling humbled by the other volunteers I met and by the warmth and kindness shown to me by the clients.  I am hoping to continue to gain the trust of the clients and help them move forward on their journey.

Volunteering at Open Door has been a life changing experience for me.  I very much appreciate my life and everything I have.  I continue to support Open Door. I go in monthly and gather donations to take in when I visit. The work that this charity does is amazing and I’m so proud to be part of it!
