Victoria - Session Volunteer

My name is Victoria and I joined Newbury Soup Kitchen in February 2018. I had been keeping my ears and eyes open for a while for something I could do to help vulnerable people in my local area on a regular basis when I saw a post on Facebook asking for volunteers. My first visit was for an informal chat with Mai and Meryl and I vividly remember my apprehension as I approached the door to The Salvation Army hall for the first time. I took a deep breath and pushed open the door to be greeted with warmth and chatter and friendly faces. It is early days for me and I am excited at getting to know everyone better and helping however I can.
