“…forever grateful for being introduced to volunteering.”

A lady came into the centre to ask about groups donating winter clothes. She later followed up with this email –


“I was an original volunteer in the 80’s when Granny Spiers was first formed and it was great to see how well things have gone. Thanks to the experience I had, especially in Spirula Way and Estuary Way I was able to get work in the childcare area. As a single parent at the time it also provided me with friendships and a feeling of worth. My name back then was Jill Rashbrook and I will be forever grateful for being introduced to volunteering.

Regards, Jill Wade.”
