I started running the club in 1978 and am the Club’s Co-ordinator recruiting and supporting volunteers to run the Junior Youth Club on a Friday night. In that time I have been a member of Reading Council and a school governor at two Tilehurst schools and helped train people to do youth work. I enjoy seeing the club full of children enjoying themselves and working with a brilliant group of volunteers and it’s always lovely to see members from the earlier days bring their own children to the club. In my leisure time I enjoy cycling, walking the dogs, camping and listening to a certain brand of Irish pop music.
I have been volunteering at the club now for many years and started when my own children attended the club. I have been on the committee and now a Friday Night volunteer. I like playing games and helping children be included – girls and boys, I believe I have a friendly, silly and fun nature. It’s great to see the shy children flourish.
