Sandy's Hub Experience
Recently we asked Sandy what her involvement at The Hub has meant to her. Here are some of her thoughts:
What have you learnt?
“Learning new tasks like taking things apart like sewing machines, knitting machines, typewriters and putting them back together like a puzzle.”
“We have to learn to be safe at Workaid so we need to keep ourselves safe so we don’t want accidents.”
“Learning to use a sewing machine to make a dress.”
“In the Hub we have people who are young who have finished college courses and need the experience of life and build up their social communication practical skills.”
What do you do?
“Having the opportunity to help people in other countries who don’t have much.”
“Sorting buttons out into their colours and sort what button types they are.”
“Helping to get things ready for the Workaid Shop or for sale on eBay.”
“We ask the volunteers what they want to drink at break time and make and serve them tea and coffee. We put out biscuits and sometimes homemade cake.”
What do you enjoy?
“People at Workaid are so friendly and chat to us all the time and join us for lunch. It feels like we are a fun group.”
“During a pandemic we had a meeting on Zoom on the computer to keep all of us safe and it was hard to be at home and now more happier that we are allowed to go back in.”
Everyone at Workaid appreciates the diligence, hard work and commitment Sandy has continually put in, establishing an exemplar record that we are all too proud to showcase.
