Lilly has been a volunteer for the Growing Plants and Crafts groups since 2017.

I got involved with Brunswick to learn new skills and to give back to the community. I had a really good feel about Brunswick when I first looked around and spoke to people and knew straight away that I wanted to get involved.

I get a lot of satisfaction from supporting workers in the potting shed and feel very much a part of the team. I’ve learnt about plants (a plant that previously might have looked dead to me I now know how to support the worker to rescue it and create 3 new plants from potting it on!)

A highlight for me has been attending the Xmas party, seeing everyone dancing and enjoying themselves and feeling that I was a part of it all.

Brunswick is a very humbling environment and a fantastic place to work and learn. Staff are very supportive and the workers are amazingly appreciative.

Volunteering at Brunswick is the highlight of my week and I know that I would like to be involved in support work in the future.
