First day at DRUK Get yourself active as a volunteer

By Iyiola Olafimiyan

iyiolaGetting active either through sport, gyming (going to the gym :)), drawing or volunteering is something I cherish as a disabled person, so when I contacted Leanne last year about volunteering on her project I was glad she said…..yes!

So I came in on my first day anticipating that I will be well received by the folks at DRUK and get inducted into the project. You guessed right, Leanne and the rest of the team received me well and made me feel like part of the family. One great thing I am going to love about volunteering here is coffee – yes, coffee -there is good coffee here and it is free – something to look forward to every Friday then, bye bye instant coffee (every Friday treat)

I am settling down, going through policies and documents and basically getting used to the environment. I think I am going to like it here. I will not be doing a second day or third day sequel however I will occasionally update you and share my experience getting active.

Iyiola will be posting news items and tweeting from @GetYrselfActive so please follow us and check our new pages for the latest updates
