BE A VOLUNTEER
SOFA would not be in existence today if it weren’t for the huge number of volunteers who have helped out in the past and continue to do so. All the Committee, the Meals on Wheels drivers, our helpers in the Daycare Centre, and all the Book Sale helpers are volunteers.
Local people come in to the Centre and give their time to entertain our clients, and give demonstrations, hand massages and nail painting. SOFA has also been exceptionally lucky in the support it has received from the people of Shankill over the years. Our donors bake cakes for us, bring boxes of chocolates, and gifts from the churches when they have festivals and fetes. The Beavers always remember the seniors at Christmas and the patrons of Brady’s are generous with their support.
SOFA owes a special debt of thanks to Shankill Tidy Towns, whose members have worked hard on our behalf to improve our grounds, planting all the young trees and climbers, and to volunteers from Western Union who gave up their time to paint the interior of the Centre. If you would like to help in any way at all and become part of our community of volunteers, please contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
