Volunteer Case Study: Mike Bryant

Volunteer Case Study: Mike Bryant

Mike lives in the village of Guiting Power and is a Lunch Club volunteer for Cotswold Friends, helping vulnerable and older people enjoy a good hot meal, meet new friends, and catch up with each other’s news or just relax in a friendly atmosphere.

Mike is retired and volunteers once a month at the charity’s Lunch Club which takes place at The Halfway House, Kineton, Guiting Power on the first Thursday of every month.

Mike says: “Cotswold Friends once helped me, and I wanted to give something back when I found out what they did.

“Being a volunteer for the charity has given me great satisfaction in helping others, and I’ve found it helpful because it adds a purpose.

“What I enjoy about volunteering is meeting all sorts of people from all sorts of backgrounds, including lady Spitfire pilots.”

Cotswold Friends sends an enormous ‘thank you’ to Mike and all the volunteers who make a difference to their organisation by giving their time and dedication

Cotswold Friends has volunteer roles, including Community Transport driver roles, available now to support people who may be isolated in the North Cotswolds and Cirencester.
