Why I love volunteering! By John Dilley

Volunteering for Style Acre has offered me so many opportunities

The best being that you instantly become part of a team that provides many different elements of work experience. There are so many inspirational people working within the organisation and it is a real privilege to know them.

My volunteering role has been a lot of fun providing so many new experiences. Where else would you see more than 200 Santa’s running around Wallingford or the Big Boss abseiling down Dorchester Abbey? – examples of fundraising events for Style Acre that I have been involved with! It has also been great fun too in helping at the Tea room summer fete and Christmas grotto as a part-time elf.

My greatest enjoyment has been working with the adults we support in the Tea room

I love meeting new people – both work colleagues, people we support and our customers. Everyone can bring their own skills gained during a previous working life and will also acquire new skills from the expert team at Style Acre who provide excellent in-house training for the many different aspects of the work they do.

As a volunteer I look forward to going to work every time.

Who wants to be a volunteer? I DO!!

Thank you so much John for your enthusiasm and dedication!
