Celebrating Volunteers’ Week – ChrisPosted on 4th June 2014 by Sean de Podesta
Mini blog 2: A man who likes to say yes.
When Chris retired as a sheltered housing manager, we were delighted that he chose to volunteer with the NCS. Perhaps he knew what many older people need: help with those small niggling tasks that might once have been easy.
Equally adept with screwdriver, spade or computer and happy to give lifts, Chris rarely turns down a request for help and has assisted 44 scheme members over the last three years, in a quiet, kind and unassuming way. Chris is also a volunteer Lay Assessor, visiting older people in their homes to get feedback on the quality of their home care.
Thank you, Chris!
