Even though Soul Café is born and bred Novocastrian many of our volunteers come to us from other places…. like one of our newest volunteers, Justine.
I started at Soul in 2017 doing Wednesday Lunch service and now volunteer doing Monday Breakfast Shift each week which I love. I choose to volunteer to give back to the community and do what I can to help as many people as I can, one small gesture of kindness has the power to carry on through the world as a small ripple.
I would recommend volunteering to friends and people. It brings new meaning and perspective on life outside of your own.
For some of our guests, it is so much more than just a meal. A simple smile or talk means the world to our Soul Guests, and I know the meal is important, but I believe the most rewarding part is talking to them.
