Volunteers' Week 2018 - Jodie's Story

06th June 2018

Maritime Museum & McDonald’s

James had spotted the sign for the maritime museum when we were driving to the Befriend a Child unit after an outing, so we decided to go there!  We headed to the museum and picked up the treasure hunt style quiz and worked together to find all of the items on the map and answering the questions as we went.  There was lots of information about working offshore and oil & gas so I told James about my experience working offshore and working in a shipyard.  We managed to find all items on the map therefore returned to reception to pick up a cool little badge for our efforts!  

We headed to McDonalds for a lunchtime treat.  James sat next to a younger child and played some games while I waited for our order.  I saw him helping out the other children with their game which was lovely to see.  A simple day out but lots of fun nonetheless!
