What inspired you to contact The Brick about volunteering opportunities?
I have thought about joining The Brick volunteer team for some time. It is something that I feel passionate about and I genuinely want to help others that are less fortunate.
What’s your previous experience of volunteering?
I currently also volunteer at my local primary school. This role I particularly enjoy. I have been a volunteer at the school for approximately 18months.
Are you employed? Retired? Student? In between Jobs? Unable to work?
Currently unemployed, housewife.
What do you hope to get from volunteering at The Brick?
With my children growing up I am hoping to gain some valuable experience towards gaining employment in the future.
What area of The Brick would you like to or have started volunteering in and why?
I am currently in Dottie’s cafe. However, I am open to try different areas at The Brick. I have experience in Customer services and I am also a qualified fitness instructor, so the options I think could be quite varied going forward!

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.
