Welcome to our new Shine Childcare volunteer, Chantelle! Chantelle recently had the opportunity to meet with the team and other volunteers at the Stay and Play session at Greenfarm Hostel, Ely. A mini party was organised to celebrate the success of the project to date. The project funder, the Big Lottery, visited to talk to young families who have benefited from the project.
Children had fun on the bouncy castle and enjoyed their teddy bears picnic. Volunteer Bethan commented, “I love volunteering with the Shine project! I have learnt so much about children’s play and family support. My morning volunteering with Shine is easily the highlight of my week. Volunteering has inspired me to consider a career in Family Support Work.”
Volunteer Chantelle really enjoyed her morning, “I can’t believe how much Taff offers! I found out about training through the newsletter in the post. The courses have been really good as they have built on my interest working with children. I did Childcare at college a few years ago, so I am looking to refresh my knowledge as I would like a job working with children one day. Chatting to Bethan about her time volunteering, I am excited about this new chapter of my life. I feel so lucky I read the Taff newsletter otherwise I would have missed out on this great opportunity!”
