From helpful guest to tea group volunteer

18 September 2013

St Michael's Church, Houghton le Spring

A regular guest at St Michael's Tea Group has enjoyed her time with the group so much that she has now joined the team of volunteers running the project.

Elizabeth has learning disabilities and thought that the tea group would be a great place to meet others and enjoy tea.  As a seasoned volunteer, she didn’t waste any time in offering to help out and is absolutely thrilled to see her name on the volunteer rota each week.  Her infectious smiles, joy and enthusiasm helps lift the spirits of everyone at the tea group.

One of her favourite roles is to call the bingo numbers, but she is very happy to help out in any way she can.

"Volunteering at St Michael's Tea Group makes me really happy," said Elizabeth. "I love to help others and make people smile, and here I can do both!"
