“My name is William, I am 26 years old and I live in Goole. I have been with The Green Team for nearly 1 month.
I admit I was a bit nervous at first when I started volunteering with The Green Team because it was starting a new challenge and doing a completely different type of voluntary work to the previous ones I have done for work experience or volunteering.
I have been trained on how to use the large and small lawnmowers and the strimmer to cut the grass – always wearing my personal safety equipment. I am hoping whilst I
am with The Green Team to be trained to use the hedge cutters and to learn how to use them appropriately.
The Green Team has completely changed my life.
Every day I am with them I am learning new things and having new experiences –
wherever it is – in the office or if it is going out with them. I work with the best people, they are all great to work with and they share all their experiences that they have done in the past – jobs etc. I have made great friends with them all and they have really helped me settle in. They have made me feel very good about myself and have showed me what is like being a member of The Green Team. I have the utmost respect of everyone that I have been working with. I would also like to thank all of you so much for giving me a chance to show you what I can do and for letting me volunteer with you, it truly means a lot to me it really does.”
