Iris’s story – National Volunteer Week 2017


Iris worked as a shop assistant until she had to have an operation.

I had an operation and when I had recovered I found that I was bored and wanted something to do, which is why I looked into volunteering. I already had experience of dealing with people so was happy that I could contribute my customer service skills. I’m a fairly patient person, which I also know can be helpful when trying to provide people with services that fits their needs.

In return for volunteering I was hoping to gain satisfaction and I feel that I achieve that on a daily basis at CT Furniture. I love working here and as well as helping others I have also gained confidence in IT by increasing my computer skills.

I see everyone at CT as a friend and I’m just glad that I get to do this on a daily basis.
