It has been heartwarming to see My Pickle develop under Cat’s steady leadership over the last 2 years, and to be part of such a committed team. I began volunteering when furloughed during lockdown, at a time when signposting to key services was so important and that need for support is still acute. Volunteering with My Pickle motivated me to return to the charity sector and inspired in me an ongoing interest in volunteer programmes as a means of providing both interesting experience and support into employment.
