Volunteers’ Week 2018, meet Tommy.
We have some amazing people volunteering across our services, supporting people and helping our staff.
And to celebrate Volunteer Week 2018, we’ve made some videos and interviews to highlight the personalities who provide support across our services, in their own communities and help make life that little better for so many people.
These dedicated people include Tommy Hollett:
Tommy has been volunteering with Nugent since retirement in 2015
Tommy retired in 2014 and began volunteering with Nugent in May 2015 at our Opening Doors project supporting isolated older people in Knowsley where he provided support to several clients who are isolated and lonely and struggled to get out of the house alone.
Thomas supported one 84 years old lady who had not left the house for 9 months due to a leg injury. Tommy persuaded her to go, with his support, to attend chair based exercises in her local community centre for 6 weeks which she continues to attend.
The lady said “Thomas was kind, patient and very helpful. He was like a brother or son to me and I am very grateful for his help”.
In 2016 was crowned Volunteer of the Year at Knowsley Sports and Culture Awards.
Tommy has also provided support at St Joseph’s Care Home in Aigburth, driving a mini bus and enabling people with various physical and mental disabilities to participate in fun days out.
On a weekly basis Tommy provides a collection service for our Charity Shop in Allerton and has completed Read to Lead training with the intention of offering reading sessions on a one to one basis to some of our service users.
Nugent’s Volunteer Coordinator, said “Thomas has been an asset, he is lovely and we’ve had very positive feedback from the people he has supported.”
