Often when people are expressing their appreciation of the Centre and the welcome they received from Reception, the Book Shop and elsewhere they are amazed when I say all these people are volunteers. Yes, the Relaxation Centre is staffed by many very committed volunteers.
People come to the Relaxation Centre for many, many reasons; some love and value their association with the Centre. Some come in search of answers, some to get over a loss, to assist with stress, anxiety, depression and some because of a personal issue which has them feeling isolated, alone or not needed yet they have much to offer and give. Volunteering can be so meaningful, it can be great for what we’re able to contribute to others and how it can enrich our own lives.
There are over 100 volunteers doing all that’s needed to allow this rare organisation to function, often seven days a week and some days from 9am to late in the evening. You choose the times you can volunteer here.
