The 3 new workers on our Big Lottery Funded BUDDIES project started on 7th January, in the snow, so that was in at the deep end! Debbie Reynolds is Volunteer Co-ordinator, Andy Holdaway is Employment Buddy Worker, and Sharon Storey is Site Buddy Worker. They will be working intensively with people with long-term issues, to improve their confidence, skills and abilities. The Project will support people, provide training and help those who want to get into work. Those who cannot will become productive volunteers through their work at Rhubarb Farm, helping produce our veg bags and developing our poultry project – more on that another month!
