John – a bit of everything

Calvary Haydon Retirement Community

I help out by driving the bus, overseeing a men’s afternoon tea each Thursday, and lead a singing group with my wife each week.

I wanted to be a volunteer because my late wife was the Pastoral Care Coordinator and I became a volunteer to share in her work.

My favourite thing about volunteering is the smiles and fellowship of the residents and the staff.

My inspiration is God. I want to serve Him by serving others.

My biggest surprise about volunteering is the love and fellowship I myself receive.

My advice to someone who is thinking about volunteering at Calvary Haydon Retirement Community is go for it.
