Raquel Pereira volunteer testimony
Raquel Pereira, Receptionist, St. Paul's Way Centre
What inspired you to volunteer?
I wanted to contribute to the SPW Centre, since I was already a regular user of the coffee shop and think it’s a wonderful initiative for the residents of the area to have access to training.
What is great about volunteering with Poplar HARCA?
It is, in my case, a simple way to help out and give something back to the community. It’s also great to volunteer here because the atmosphere is supportive and friendly.
What is the one piece of advice you would give to future volunteers?
Just be flexible. A lot of different situations come up, so you’ll just have to learn as you go along, but in the end it will certainly be an enriching experience!
