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.
What prompted you to join Soul as a volunteer?
I’ve always felt the need to reach out and help people that are less fortunate than myself.
Why do you want to help people that are less fortunate than yourself?
Because many of those less fortunate than myself did not choose to be in the vulnerable situation they find themselves in and many just need someone to care and offer them a hand up.
Volunteering is so valuable. Life is not always easy and volunteering has become such a big part of my own self-care.
How has volunteering at Soul contributed to your life?
Volunteering is so valuable. Life is not always easy and volunteering has become such a big part of my own self-care. Volunteering at Soul really puts in perspective how well I have it in life. No matter how bad I am feeling, I always reflect on my experiences at Soul for perspective.
