Two colleagues and the spirit of volunteering
Volunteers Week 2022 is disappearing in the rear view mirror.
We loved celebrating our brilliant volunteers and thanking all of them for their service to the local community.
Two of our colleagues, Maureen and Jack, embody the purpose and spirit of volunteering at Citizens Advice. One has served as an adviser for decades. The other is just starting an attachment in a vital support role.
Maureen began volunteering at CAEE in 1984. She served as a money adviser without a break until her recent retirement.
In a new blog Maureen points to a transformation of the service but the important things remain. Citizens Advice is still “the only place for help whatever the problem”. And she says “It has been a lovely place to work with everyone part of a supportive and friendly team”.
Jack recently joined us as a student volunteer as part of his college IT course. He’s developing his analytical skills by helping us ease and speed up our processes.
Already he’s the go-to colleague for IT glitches!
Volunteering at CAEE
Citizens Advice Epsom & Ewell relies on the dedicated commitment of our volunteers. If you are thinking of volunteering, we’d love to hear from you. You don’t need a particular background or experience, but should be able to commit to 1 or 2 weekdays each week for most roles.
