What inspired you to contact The Brick about volunteering opportunities?
I was inspired to help as I had the urge to every time, I saw someone homeless in the street and it’s that urge that I want to put into practice.
What’s your previous experience of volunteering?
I have no volunteering experience.
Are you employed? Retired? Student? In between Jobs? Unable to work?
I’m in full time employment.
What do you hope to get from volunteering at The Brick?
I hope to give help and support if I can and gain new skills for myself.
What area of The Brick would you like to or have started volunteering in and why?
I want to help with the homeless project and the food bank, because I’m now in a position to do so and I would like to give up some of my time to help out.
The Brick Shop is a charity shop selling donated goods, often to people on low incomes. The shop gives clothes free of charge to people referred by Wigan Council. The shop is one of the main hubs within its community.
The Brick Giving aims to put an end to poverty and homelessness in Wigan and Leigh. Our #BrickbyBrick campaign is working to raise £175,000 to purchase The Brick Works and make sure no one in our community is left behind.
