“I have been a volunteer for over 20 years in different organisations which has given me a purpose apart from holding down a regular job. There has always been a great need for people in our community to know that there are so many people wo care and are compassionate and committed to supporting those who need our support. I have been with MWP now for 10 years and I am so proud to be part of their Caring of those in need in our Community  ‘In Giving You Receive’ has always been my motto.”

I have found that I have received far more than I have given. I have been given a new lease of life, in being able to make a difference in other people’s lives. I have developed firm friendships and I continue to meet new people, which is interesting and rewarding. The MWP Care staff are friendly, approachable and extremely supportive. What I love about volunteering, is getting out and having fun, in the company of fun and appreciative clients!”
