Sue, a retired lab manager, volunteers in our Crafts area.

I’ve previously been a volunteer but was looking for something more practical. I do craft work at home so supporting Tracy, one of the workers, in crafts has really suited me. Tracy and I make cards together. We sometimes pick and press flowers for the cards. Our cards are very popular and an important source of income - we make cards for sale in the Brunswick shop and for shops in York. Xmas card production starts in July! I also volunteer occasionally for fund raising and social events.

"I like coming to Brunswick. Sue and I get on well together and we have a laugh." - Tracy

I feel very strongly that positive work experiences like Brunswick Nursery should be available to all adults with a learning difficulty. I get a lot of satisfaction from seeing workers enjoy the experience and supporting them to learn new skills.

I tell everyone that volunteering at Brunswick is one of my favourite afternoons of the week. I would highly recommend becoming part of the Brunswick volunteering team to anyone looking for opportunities.
