Diane's story...

“After the death of my mother I had more time to help out somewhere so I looked online and found BAVO.

"I visit Shirley once a week and take her out or just stay in and have a chat. I find that by helping Shirley it makes me feel as if I’ve done something worth while. 

"I also enjoy her company as she’s a lovely lady- we have now become good friends.  I’m happy to keep volunteering just to see Shirley happy every week and to make a difference. 

"Although I feel that its mutually beneficial; Shirley supports me as I support her.”
