Volunteer Work

My name is Sara and I have been volunteering since January.I voluntarily work in a café, I make coffee, tea and prepare food. I really like working there, all the staff are great, they are also volunteers. All of the staff are so caring, they are there to support me and help me out anyway they can. Since I have been volunteering I have developed new skills and this has built up my confidence and self esteem.

There are all sorts of customers that come to this coffee shop from teenagers up to the elderly, I have even served an MP !!! In the beginning I was really shy and felt a little bit out of touch but I really like it and I know my confidence will come on and be much stronger.
