I Volunteer...in two roles

Do you volunteer? Yes, in two roles.

Where/in what role? I am a Facilitator for the national charity TAMBA, I also Chair South Yorkshire Multiple Births Association.

Why did you start/why do you do it? I have twins and like to help and support other families who also have or are expecting twins.

How do you manage your time between volunteering and work? It’s a challenge, a big struggle sometimes. The TAMBA work takes place on a weekend, so that’s not too bad but the biggest challenge is my Chairing work.

What do you enjoy about it? I enjoy helping families with their worries, offering advice and tips and giving them a light at the end of the tunnel.

What would you say to someone who was considering volunteering? Do it! My volunteer work really takes me out of my comfort zone sometimes, but I meet so many people along the way and have made lots of new friends.
