Get to know Ste Donoghue, our Garden Volunteer
“I mostly enjoy getting out of the house and meeting new people, making new friends and learning new skills. This helps with my health and wellbeing.”
Ste was encouraged to join the Westfield Farm Volunteer team by a member of the Beyond Housing Employability team whilst doing some training in Eston.
Since joining Westfield Farm, Ste has said “It’s given me more confidence and my dignity back. I am able to say to people that although I might be out of work, I am volunteering and giving something back to the community”.
