Jean joined the Maurice Jagger Centre as Treasurer 13 years ago, she is also a Trustee.
The reason why she became involved was due to a group she belonged to " Calder Quilters" using the Centre to hold their monthly meetings as she felt she needed to support such a good cause.
It is one of the nicest venues I have come across, everyone is friendly and cheerful and the premises are modern and welcoming I would recommend it to anyone who needs a Central place to hold their meetings.
I joined the Maurice Jagger team about 5 years ago after being referred by a local voluntary action group.
I had been experiencing poor health for a couple of years and really needed to get out and mix with people again.
First and foremost, I am certain that it was the right decision for my recovery as I quickly became more motivated and able to enjoy what I was doing. The Centre radiates warmth from both the staff and our customers and I felt very much part of a really caring team.
These days I really look forward to Wednesday and Thursday. Everybody respects the fact that we are volunteers and I never feel that I am taken for granted. Our customers are just a joy and I think I have got to know all of them in the time I have been at the Centre.
Anybody considering becoming a volunteer will, I'm sure, find this a very enjoyable and rewarding experience.
I joined as a volunteer in January 2016 and I update the Maurice Jagger Website to keep it up to date with current activities and centre availability so that the centre is used fully. Since retiring in September 2016 I also help out on a regular basis at one of the Luncheon Clubs and other events like the Autumn Fair. I have met some lovely people and really enjoy my time there.
I am hoping I can make a difference by helping to promote the Centre through the website.
