A little help from our volunteer friends

Elisabeth Hood

Our 5p Bus is getting a little extra help during National Volunteers’ Week as employees from Home Group climb on board to become volunteers for a day.

Elisabeth Hood was the first Home Group volunteer to try her hand at offering some extra customer care when she travelled with the bus in the East end of Newcastle.

“Home Group gave every employee the opportunity to volunteer this week and provided us with some options that we could choose from,” said Elisabeth. “I jumped at the chance of travelling with the 5p Bus because I knew about the service and the good work it did.”

Customers immediately took to her and, in no time at all, she was serving, welcoming people on board and helping to keep the bus looking presentable.

“I’ve really enjoyed it and would love to volunteer in the future whenever I have time on my hands,” said Elisabeth.

Two more Home Group volunteers will be on board our 5p Bus on Friday to round off National Volunteers’ Week.
