Cerys – Knitting Volunteer

◾️ Tell us a little about yourself.

I am a 16-year-old student who enjoys crocheting in my spare time. I taught myself to crochet last year.

◾️ What volunteer role (or roles) are you involved in at Caerphilly Miners?

I have been involved in helping support sorting in the craft room and crocheting the rectangles together to make blankets. I also make the borders on the blankets.

◾️ Why do you enjoy this role (roles)?

I get to meet people in the community that share a love of crocheting and craft. It makes me happy that I can do something for my community. I have the opportunity to have the flexibility to volunteer at home in my own time.

◾️ What do you think the participants get from this activity?

It’s a great way to socialize with people and talk to likeminded people about crafts. It’s a great way to meet new people. Volunteering is a way of giving back to the community that doesn’t cost anything.

◾️ We would like to encourage others to volunteer with us at the Miners. Can you tell us why you would recommend it?

It’s a great place to come along to, there is lots of different project’s opportunities for you to get involved in. You can enjoy both the crafting and the socializing.

◾️ Is there anything else you would like to add?

It’s a welcoming place, and the history of the building is interesting.
