Volunteers' Week 2020
Meet Pauline, one of our food collection volunteers.
I was scrolling through Facebook one Saturday morning in June 2017 and noticed a post asking for volunteers who could offer their time a few hours a week to make collections from local shops that were donating food to the homeless. I was due to take early retirement in July 2017, just a few weeks later, so I immediately wrote to Arc offering to help. I’ve always felt immensely sorry for anyone that finds themselves homeless and, having seen it growing in my home town over the last decade, knew that if I could help in any way I would do all I could.
