My community involvement

My name is Andrew, I love chatting with people, and being a part of the community is important to me. To increase my community involvement, I have been volunteering at a local cafe called Mint Lane Cafe.

This café supports people who are homeless and in need. I enjoy spending time volunteering here and the staff at the cafe often praise my involvement and enjoyment. When I first started volunteering, I mainly washed dishes and served food and drink to customers. More recently I have been helping to sort through the produce which is donated to the Café for use- this reduces food waste in the local area.

The produce is donated in boxes which I then sort through and organise for the Café so that the boxes can be given back and reused. I’m learning a lot about recycling, reusing, and other new skills, I’ve got another exciting volunteering opportunity coming up soon… watch this space!



Why not, sit back and read more about some of our great successes.
