My name is Siobhan McCool and I volunteer at Cookstown Base. I have volunteered here for approximately 4 years.
I really enjoy my day at the Base. I enjoy interacting with others and my volunteer work has given me the perfect opportunity to mix with others and enjoy their company. I feel many benefits from my volunteer work. These include having a purpose to my week and a sense of helping others and in turn being helped by them.
It has given me confidence in myself and an insight into skills that I have which I was previously unaware of.
I now also volunteer at The Hub and I hope that my future includes working on a paid basis in areas or with those whom I currently volunteer with.
