John’s story – Volunteer Week 2017

By | Transport, Volunteering | No Comments

John

CT Passenger service driver

I am a friendly person and was looking for a charity that I could volunteer at so I could give back to the community by meeting and helping people. This has been the case at CT Passenger. Not only have I increased my owned confidence, I have also gained additional people skills.

I really enjoy working at CT Passenger services and encourage others to volunteer so that they can benefit, as well as help others.

Dave’s volunteer story – Volunteer Week 2017

Dave – Volunteer CT Passenger driver

Before working at CT Passenger services as a driver my life was quite mundane; I was bored, shy, quite depressed and unable to engage in conversation with others.

I originally began working at CT Passenger services as a part of a work placement scheme run through the job centre. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to stay on when the placement was finished.

Volunteering has helped me  feel useful and I have became more confident in the knowledge that my driving skills helps others get from A to B, as well as helps them remain independent and socialise with others.

The environment at CT Passenger services is very friendly and I enjoy the company of my colleagues. I’ve also been MIDAS trained and have increased my customer service skills. I would encourage others to volunteer here as I have really have had an excellent experience overall.
