Volunteering has its benefits...
The Play Centre is kept open entirely with the help of volunteers. Without that support, it would not exist.
Volunteers are able to bring their children in for free while they volunteer, and if they volunteer 4 hours or more per month are able to drop in for free anytime the Play Centre is open.
Volunteering has other benefits! Research has shown that people who volunteer experience real health benefits - it improves both their physical and mental health.
The role of the volunteer is to mainly keep the doors open and lights on, and be a friendly and welcoming face to those that visit. Volunteers also help to ensure that the space is safe for everyone to enjoy.
