Silver D of E Volunteering - by guest editor Rose

Over the last few months, Jax has kindly offered me some hours helping her out at the Bushbells home headquarters so I can complete my Silver D of E volunteering section.


I have loved my visits and it was so great to do something a little bit different. I've loved helping an organisation that gives back and works so hard to support so many people in Kenya.  


I have worked in the stock room, and been stock tidying, sorting, and data entry and, data entry onto the website, as well as packaging up orders.  It's been fascinating watching the whole process.  


I am a keen seamstress and as part of my volunteering I have also enjoyed sewing colourful bucket hats and scrunchies out of kikoy offcuts at home. I have learnt so much about the work Bushbells does, and the administration involved. I can really recommend supporting Bushbells to fulfil the volunteering criteria for D of E.



I am also a proud owner of some kikoy pull-ons which I love to wear and are very handy as D of E pyjamas!  It's been an honor to have the new 'softie' fabric named after me too!
