Club volunteers help at club days, assisting with activities, making tea and coffee, collecting lunches and ensuring our members have a great tie.
Club Volunteer Profile – Kathleen
I’m volunteering at Kennington Memory Club because I enjoy spending time and helping club members, who are living with dementia. I particularly enjoy chatting with the members and listening to their stories when they recall tales from their past and reminisce about their rich experiences.
The group is like a small family who all get along with each other. One of the ways volunteers and staff spend time is encouraging the members in memory and word games. This helps them to energise and engage with everyone. These interactive activities contribute to the happy, fun atmosphere at the Club.
The other volunteers and staff are very welcoming and helped me to settle in quickly and to become a productive member of the team. It’s a joy to spend time with everyone.
