    Why Volunteer?

    We asked our current team why they Volunteer:

    “I chose to start volunteering at The Fraser Centre because I think it is a great project and I wanted to give something back to the community I live in. I recently retired from work and have been helping in the office using skills I learned there. Volunteering has given me the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and learn new skills. The volunteers at The Fraser Centre are a great bunch of people and our aim is to create a family friendly centre in Tranent where everyone is welcome”.

    “I do it because it gets me out and gives me a chance to meet other people. I get a lot of satisfaction out of helping people”.

    “I volunteer to get me out meeting new people and doing new things. I have met so many lovely people and done some new interesting activities. Very pleased I started volunteer and looking forward to coming along to all the varied activities. I feel more at home in Tranent now”.

    “I volunteer at The Fraser Centre because I think we have a fabulous community asset in the building that needs to be shared. I want the building to buzz again with loads of activity as it once did as a cinema all those years ago. I also volunteer as I feel I can make a difference to low income families by giving them a place to go and enjoy family”

    “I’ve really enjoyed volunteering at the children’s matinee films. It’s been good to get to know families from all over Tranent and surrounding areas. I’ve especially enjoyed helping at the special needs events and to see adults and children captivated by the films”.

    “I volunteered at the ‘follow the Herring’ arts and crafts day. It was fun being creative and making fishes and other sea creatures. I also had the pleasure of teaching a young girl how to knit”!

    “It’s a great opportunity to meet new people and make friends. Volunteering gives you an opportunity to learn new skills and push the boundaries of what you think you can do. It’s challenging but rewarding too. I volunteer as I want to give something back to the community and I find it rewarding”.
