Volunteers' Week 2018 - Lyndsay's Story

04th June 2018

To raise a smile today, Lyndsay has shared her story of being a befriender:

Kayla​ had never been swimming before we met. The first twice we went she clung to me and just enjoyed being in the water. Knowing it was a good life skill I was keen to build her confidence and try to teach her.

The third time we went I got her goggles and arm bands, with those and a pool noodle she was going it alone. After asking me for confirmation that she was actually swimming her little face lit up like the sun and now she's telling everyone about it.

It's moments like this that make me realise just how big an impact I'm having in her life and it takes so little out of mine to do.
