What inspired you to contact The Brick about volunteering opportunities?
I’ve volunteered for The Brick for just over 3 weeks
What is your volunteer role(s)?
My volunteer role is to shadow and help out with Reception and Admin.
What do you feel is the best bit of your volunteer role?
The best bit about volunteering in my volunteer role is the fact I get to see first-hand how the charity is helping the people within the community who need it the most.
Describe a memorable event or anecdote in your time as a volunteer at The Brick that makes you feel good about being part of this organisation.
I haven’t volunteered long to have a memorable event but seeing the positive impact the organisation has on those who need our help the most is so rewarding
What are your aspirations for the future within The Brick and in the wider world?
My aspirations for The Brick are to continue to help in any way I can as I know even volunteering for a few hours a week can make a huge difference.
A word of encouragement for anyone considering joining The Brick as a volunteer.
Just do it. It’s so rewarding knowing you may be making someone’s day no matter what role you are volunteering in.
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.
