#ThrowbackThursday: Providing Vital Support in our Volunteer Centre

Volunteers’ Week is coming up! We are so lucky to be supported by so many amazing volunteers – people like Colette – a busy mum who still finds time to come in and make sure the CAFOD Birmingham Volunteer Centre is running smoothly!

Colette started volunteering for us in our Volunteer Centre in Walsall just over two years ago. She is a very busy mum to three sons and one daughter and manages to find time to come in regularly to help us with a number of crucial tasks.

We rely on Colette to keep our records of any volunteer activities, such as school visits, parish fundraising etc up to date. Colette has great IT skills and has created some really helpful spreadsheets for us.

Colette also helps us to keep our database up to date by recording any changes relating to parishes and schools, a vital task to ensure we are able to contact the right people when we send out any communications.

We also rely on Colette to make phone calls for us, to parishes, schools and volunteers, a really important and vital task that she does using her experience of being an active member of her parish.

Colette told us ‘Volunteering at CAFOD gives me the opportunity to put my faith in to action and feel that I’m making a difference to the lives of others’.

Find out more about volunteering opportunities and contact us at birmingham@cafod.org.ukif you would like to join our volunteer team.

Thank you Colette for being such a vital and valuable member of our team.
