Volunteer – Steve
When I retired I found something was missing from my life; the mental challenges and camaraderie of work. A friend mentioned Remap and he challenged me to take on being the Chairman and to get more volunteers, help more people, increase the income and raise the local profile.
We are now ten times the size we were; a solvent, happy group helping dozens of people each year. Everyone won; I have my challenges, the volunteers are free to solve people’s problems and our profile is higher.
Engineers take pride in the quantity and quality jobs done and problems solved to help local disabled people and don’t worry about publicity work, fundraising and admin while I can look with some satisfaction to the group growth.
