All the best for your training Victoria, and good luck on the big day!
Victoria says “After relocating to Thame for a new job I saw an advert to become a volunteer for Enrych. The advert mentioned a young girl of a similar age to myself with Cerebral Palsy who would like to go out for a coffee and a chat, maybe a trip to the cinema, or even shopping from time to time. Not knowing many people in the area, I thought it would be a great opportunity to meet people and give something back to the community. Over three years later, it has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I have gained an amazing friend, and thoroughly enjoy our trips out. In contrast to the ad, we discovered coffee isn’t our thing – we’re both hot chocolate lovers and have enjoyed many of these in the pub together! In the summer we venture out for long walks in the fresh air, putting the world to rights. I didn’t realise how much it would change my life, but meeting A has inspired me greatly. I am really proud of everything she’s achieved and can think of no better charity to fundraise for!
